Iranian music scientist and master of the Santur, Peyman Heyradian, brings together a group of musicians to create a vibrant and mysterious world of music that spans the ancient traditions of Iran and contemporary jazz.  The santur is a magical sounding instrument, and tonight it is put together with the Magnetic Resonator Piano (MRP), an instrument of beguiling sonorities.  The MRP is the creation of Dr Andrew McPherson of QMUL’s Centre for Digital Music.  It is an electronically-augmented acoustic piano capable of eliciting new sounds acoustically from the piano strings, without speakers.
