An artist of singular vision, pianist Jenny Q Chai is widely renowned for her ability to illuminate musical connections throughout the centuries.  With razor-sharp intention, Chai integrates her prodigy’s training with personal fascinations in the latest in live electronics, artificial intelligence, and environmental research, creating layered multimedia programs and events which explore and unite elements of science, nature, and art.

Piano Steampunk explores the relationships between piano and electronics with works by Debussy, Marco Stroppa, Louis-Claude Daquin, Cole Ingraham, John Cage , Theodore Wiprud, Frederic Rzewski, Victoria jordanova, Cindy Cox, Jaroslaw Kapuscinski and Richard Sussman.

"Jenny Q Chai demonstrated true affinity for contemporary music throughout the challenging program she played on Thursday night at Zankel Hall... playing with resourceful technique and sensitivity...her playing was admirable for its refinement and directness..."
-- Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times

Rechargeable Battery Notebook Hack - Prototype

When we first met with Jie, she showed us her remarkable powered sketchbook, which she created by disassembling a Moleskine notebook, hollowing out the back cover to embed a rechargeable battery she repurposed from a cell phone charging case and then running power leads onto each page. Natalie also used this approach to power her wifi-connected notebook.

Both of these hacks seemed far too sophisticated for me to attempt myself when I first saw them, but now I have a lot more paper circuitry projects under my belt. My notebook finally filled up and I needed to move into a new one, so I figured it was time to see if I could up my hacking game and create my own version of Jie’s and Natalie’s power hack.
