About PIANO PUNK

What is PIANO PUNK? I do arrangements of hardcore, metal, grunge, and punk for piano and voice! I'm a classically-trained pianist who makes connections between contemporary classical and underground music!

I do live shows, audio recordings, and youtube videos of my live shows!

You can find many of my videos here.

Who am I?
  • Someone who wants to destroy the boundaries of genre and create musical anarchy!
  • Someone who wants to smash musical binaries: high-brow vs low-brow, classical vs popular, serious vs frivolous, masculine vs feminine, underground vs mainstream, etc.
  • Someone who is obsessed with music history, musicology, gender in music, queer theory in music, and sound in general!
  • Someone who doesn't like pompous academic language who wants to talk about music and culture in a modern and understandable way
  • Someone who believes in DIY (Do-It-Yourself) and DIT (Do-It-Together)
  • Someone just as fanatical as you are about incredible songs and amazing bands

Who are you?
  • Someone who loves hardcore, metal, grunge, or punk who wants to hear ALL the songs you know and love re-imagined in new and creative ways!
  • Someone who wants to discover new punk and hardcore songs, through unconventional methods.
  • Someone who loves classical music but wants to see or feel the connections between metal, hardcore, grunge, or punk and 21st century music!
  • Someone who loves noisy, loud music but sometimes just wants something quieter for downtime
  • Someone who hates hard rock but is trying to learn about it and test the water to appease or please the metalheads in your life (no judgement here! Welcome!)
  • Someone who loves mash-ups and musical novelties!
  • Someone who loves to see other people fuck with gender in music: macho, masculine, aggressive songs sung by someone with a distinctly "feminine" voice is your jam
