Theatre of Resonance is a duo for a pianist and video of the same pianist, or for two pianos. In the video version Piano I is played live; Piano II must be previously recorded and filmed, and then projected behind the pianist in performance. The video should attempt to suggest, in so far as is possible, that it represents a ghostly shadow, an uncanny ‘alter-ego’ of the live performer.

Theatre of Resonance was first performed by Christina McMaster on 27 June 2014 at the Concert Room, Royal Academy of Music, London.
