New Zealand pianist Xenia Pestova is playing a collection of new music by mostly contemporary and female composers as part of her Chamber Music New Zealand tour. One of the works she has commissioned from Miriama Young called The Grey Ghost, for piano and electronics, uses a bespoke App SyncSound which audience members can use to stream the electronic part during the performance from their Smartphones. Xenia and Miriama talk about this new way of helping audiences engage directly with the music.
