Salome & Salichan: “Always with Me”
A Swiss Society of NY Premiere: Swiss pianist Salome Scheidegger and her animated pink-haired sidekick “Salichan” present music from video games and Japanese anime movies live on piano in a brand new audiovisual concert experience.
Thursday, September 21st, 2017, at 6:30 pm at the Sheen Center for Thought and Culture in New York City.
From the artist:
“I like to combine music and visuals because I think together they can create a heightened experience for the audience, take them on a journey and discover music in a way they might not have known before.
Based on this idea, I created a second performer on stage, Salichan, an animated avatar who is projected on screen and will help me show the audience what powerful impact music has on us. She is my sidekick, but also impersonates my alter-ego in a way because she speaks her mind in situations where I (and many of us) might not dare to speak up. Innocent and fearless like a child, Salichan was created to connect with the audience and inspire.”
Salome Scheidegger is a Japan-born Swiss pianist and arranger based in NYC. Focusing on music from video games and Japanese animation movies, she’s committed to bringing piano music to a young and diverse audience by making high-quality music that is true to herself, and to creating a modern concert experience.
Rooted in classical music, she has performed worldwide as soloist in recitals and with orchestras, and she has recorded 7 solo albums. Since 2013 she has toured nationally and internationally with video game rock band Critical Hit and with YouTube sensation violinist Taylor Davis. Salome started arranging and commissioning video game and anime music covers for solo piano and recorded
“PLAY”, her first solo album in the genre, in 2015. Her latest album “Salichan” was released in December 2016 and features piano arrangements of songs from the beloved soundtracks of the Studio Ghibli movies Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, and others.
