Professor Christopher J. Keyes’s new album, Ravello Records’ A CONNOTATION OF INFINITY, consists of a CD, a DVD and a Blu-ray disc. The record speaks directly to why listeners should embrace the transgressive element of electronics in traditional classical music, and it envelopes and enters the minds of listeners from all walks of life.
Professor Keyes, who wrote as much software for the album as he did music, employs his own interactive graphics software for a more immersive experience. It also features performances of selected pieces on video.
The album opens with a 17-minute-plus epic performed by the Janáček Philharmonic Ostrava. It was originally written for Professor Johnny Poon, Head of the Department of Music, and the HKBU Symphony Orchestra.
