Wanderer of Realities: An Augmented Reality Piano Recital – FREE EVENT



Wanderer of Realities: An Augmented Reality Piano Recital – FREE EVENT

Piano recital, cooperating technology and augmented reality by Giovanni Santini.

Registration Link:


Giovanni Santini is a composer and pianist with a PhD in Music by Hong Kong Baptist University. His research focused on explorative work in the application of Augmented and Virtual Reality in musical creation and performance. Join us in this new experimental musical performance with Fazioli Grand Piano!


"The program of this concert is divided into two parts. In the first part, I present three AR compositions for augmented piano in Augmented Reality, Studi sulla realtà nuova (Etudes on the new reality). In those pieces, I use virtual objects to augment the piano, creating a meta-instrument which can produce acoustic as well as spatialized electronic sounds. These works seek to push the boundaries of what we consider to be art, immersivity and instrumental technique.

In the second part, I play Italia, a group of compositions constituting the second book (or “year”) of Années de Pèlegrinage (Years of Pilgrimage), composed by Liszt in 1835-1838.

For me, technology can be a form of craft aimed at new ways of expression. I see the instrumental technique developed by Liszt as a piece of technology, built on top of another piece of technology (the piano itself). This is one thread connecting the two parts of the concert.

Wanderer of realities refers to the Romantic wanderer, inspiring Liszt’s pilgrimage. In a broader sense, Augmented Reality is also a “wandering” technology, unstably oscillating between real and imaginary. And the path of the concert itself, from virtually augmented to real piano, describes another wandering voyage."

---- Giovanni Santini
