Keith Kirchoff: Electro-Acoustic Piano

Pianist and composer Keith Kirchoff has performed throughout North America, Europe, and the Pacific Southwest. A strong advocate for modern music, Kirchoff has premiered over 100 new works and commissioned over two dozen compositions. The Electro-Acoustic Piano (EAPiano) is an ongoing project which supports and promotes new works for piano and electronics. Started in 2009 by Kirchoff, the project has so far commissioned over 30 different composers and has been presented throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Belgium, Germany, New Zealand, Australia, and England. EAPiano has been featured as a part of the SEAMUS festival (Society of Electro Acoustic Music in the United States), ICMC (International Computer Music Conference), Festival International de Musique Actuelle de Victoriaville in Quebec, and the Festival Internacional de Música Contemporánea in Morelia, Mexico. Additionally, EAPiano has hosted two international composer competitions in collaboration with the American Composers Forum in 2014 and the University of Toronto in 2011. The first album in the EAPiano series was released in 2011 on the Thinking outLOUD Records label.
