Sarah Nicolls is an experimental pianist. She has performed with the London Sinfonietta, the Philharmonia Orchestra and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales. She also plays with Mira Calix and David Sheppard in Alexander’s Annexe, exploring the meeting of the grand piano and electronic music. Here, Sarah performs on her own invention: the inside-out piano. To create this instrument, Sarah transformed an upright piano, removing its insides and adding microphones and other noise-making devices. She continues to develop the inside-out piano, using it as the basis for further experiments with sound.
