Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Martin Scherzinger is a South African-born composer and media theorist, who works on and engages with the music of Africa. African Math is a recording of piano trio music that "africanizes" these western instruments (flipping the typical appropriation of indigenous instruments on its head). Piano, violin, and cello are used as conduits for material originally intended for mbira, or kalahari, or Ugandan xylophone. Underlying the layer of transcription, Scherzinger brings his expertise to bear, reverently highlighting and delighting in the rich musical mathematics which exist at the core of so many musical traditions in Africa.
