Carlos Cipa: 8.00pm – 9.15pm

As part of the Metronome Piano Sessions – bringing together the best pianists from around the world, for intimate seated performances.

We’re delighted to host Munich and Berlin-based pianist Carlos Cipa. Classically trained with an interest for pop, jazz and electronic music, his performance at Metronome celebrates the release of his new album ‘Ourselves, as we are’, centered around coming to terms with your innermost self.

A very personal and intimate album it comprises of nine short piano pieces. Created in ultimately just a few weeks, Cipa has taken a distinctive approach, playing as quietly as possible as a “conscious introspection”, a kind of zooming in on the object of contemplation. The fascinating result is nothing less than the discovery of a new piano sound world, which according to Cipa, allows “an even deeper empathy with the instrument”.

As Cipa points out, “Today, it can be more radical to make a quiet piano album than a totally complex and intricate piece of music.” Undoubtedly, the multifaceted sound palette and disarmingly raw and fragile emotional elements make the music of ‘Ourselves’.

In the age of fake authenticity, remakes, and pieces commissioned for high-reach mood playlists, this approach is perhaps one of the few remaining ways to create art: to reveal our true selves. Radically personal. Radically intimate. Radically honest.
