Equal parts pianist, composer, and live production wizard, Mark de Clive-Lowe casually erases the lines between genres and eras. He juggles piano, synths, live sampling, and beat making all on the fly, and brings them to life with a casual ease, whether he’s remixing classic Blue Note Records in real time, collaborating onstage with other renowned musicians and artists, or creating live soundtracks to classic film material. For this special presentation, de Clive-Lowe brings together his eclectic vision, global perspective, and special collaborations in a unique performance process, demonstrating what can manifest when worlds collide with open ears, hearts, and minds.
