Event Details

Keyna Wilkins will deliver a 45 minute lecture-recital for the Australasian Piano Pedagogy Conference Tuesday 9th July 12-12.45pm at the Zelman Cowen Building (51) R.460 at the Univeristy of Queensland.

Keyna Wilkins is a pioneering musician-composer who performs her own unique compositions and improvisations. She was one of three national finalists in the APRA/AMCOS Art Music Awards for Individual Excellence 2018 and has performed around the world. While classically trained, she has branched into jazz, flamenco, live theatre and has studied intuitive conceptual improvisation with Tibetan Buddhist musician Tenzin Cheogyal. ‚Äč In her solo piano concerts, Wilkins explores the concept of Ad Libitum (Ad Lib) as spontaneous musical ideas inspired by her myriad of music experiences with the aim of synthesizing into one voice, creating emotional connection and attaining a meditative state. Stylistically broad, inspired by Debussy and Miles Davis in equal measure, and sometimes with fragments of her fully composed music, her concerts will take you on a journey of impressionistic dream-like sequences alongside landscape depictions, existential philosophical quests alongside whimsical gestures. In 2017 Wilkins released Keys Across The Sky, a solo piano album of her compositions and improvisations inspired by jazz, flamenco and impressionism and in 2011 she released an entirely improvised album, Jazz Reverie. Wirripang has published a number of her solo piano compositions: "Sky Pieces" is a book of 8 miniatures and Star Dance has been included in Wirripang's Piano Anthology of Women Composers of Piano Music Vol 2 including CD recorded by Katie Zhukov to be launched in 2019 at the Australasian Piano Pedagogy Conference. Her compositions involving piano have been performed by herself and other pianists such as Kosmas Lapatas (Greece) and Yasmin Rowe (Melbourne) around the world including concert halls in USA, Greece, Germany, Poland, UK, Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney.
