The future is Polyrhythmic | Edward Chilvers | TEDxReading


This talk presents a case for why structural polyrhythm is the inevitable future direction of music. Starting with a model of the nature of musical perception, and moving through a historical account of how musical appreciation has developed and evolved, Edward explains and demonstrates his musical techniques that advance music forward into the next stage of evolution.

Edward is a Young Steinway Artist for whom music has been the center of his existence from the age of 4. Whilst his musical journey has taken him through nearly every genre and many instruments, the last half decade has seen him immersed in a new way of playing the piano, which evolved from his insights into musical theory and the nature of music. He has relentlessly drilled new techniques that were necessary to make playing these works possible, and he has now produced Etudes which demonstrate the beginnings of this work.
