[ISEA2016] Artist Statement: Roman Zavada — Northern Resonances

Artist Statement

With an upright piano planted in the rock of the Canadian Shield, the film offers a colourful immersive dive into the heart of the boreal forest, under the polar lights where the piano’s resonating strings enter in a dialog with the filmed 360° auroras.

  • Roman Zavada is a self-taught Ukrainian and Québécois-born pianist whose creative direction is based on instinct, spontaneity, and improvisation. [source: colorado.edu]
