Piano, visual art and technology collide in Larkhall’s moving, cinematic performance. A composer, pianist and creative coder, he has written software to turn the nuances of each performance into reactive visual projections. His music has earned accolades from across Europe and the USA, with his 2019 album The Sea Was Never Blue reaching the #2 spot on the iTunes Classical chart. Described as a “multidimensional album which brings together creative technology and beautiful melodies”, this album introduced his unique style of new classical piano music coupled with generative video.
As a concert pianist, Larkhall was awarded the jury prize for new music at the International Shostakovich Chamber Music Competition, and was selected for the prestigious Britten–Pears School for Advanced Musical Studies. As a technologist, he has worked with multi-Grammy-award-winning group eighth blackbird. Outside of the musical realm, he has twice been a TEDx presenter, giving a 2018 talk entitled “Never give up on quitting”.
