I spent a fun day last week with James Iman and Christin Cooper, the members of the newly-formed piano duo (co)ordinal. They'll be specializing in twentieth and twenty-first century repertoire, and their debut concert will take place this fall with works by Messiaen, Debussy, and Cage.
I spent the afternoon photographing James in his natural habitat, namely his home piano studio. He gave me three ibuprofen and proceeded to blast away at some Boulez and Schoenberg while I worked around him trying to get a handle on my first experiment with off-camera flash. It was all fun though, and we came away with some great stuff and a killer idea for a Buzzfeed quiz.
