About

In the summer of 2018, the Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris played host to two exceptional, polyvalent musicians. 

First up is Elliot Galvin, the then 27-year-old British artist who was already being hailed as one of the most original, rhythmic pianists of the new generation. He uses the entire piano to create unique soundscapes – wood is tapped, strings are plucked, keys are manipulated with rare creativity and versatility. Galvin is a multi-instrumentalist whose curiosity lies at the heart of his sounds. He also experiments in electronic music, plays the African kalimba and the micro-tonal melodica (an instrument capable of producing micro-intervals that he invented). For his first solo performance in France, Galvin is utterly spellbinding, improvising from start to finish on a singular and gripping musical voyage.
