Pianist Kari Johnson will perform a concert of new music for piano, sonic and multimedia art at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 5, at Montana State University's Reynolds Recital Hall.

Johnson will be performing new works by Dan VanHassel, Christopher Biggs, Elainie Lillios, Jeff Herriott, Scott Blasco, and MSU faculty member, Jason Bolte.

Bolte's "Scrap Metal," is an electro-acoustic work that explores relationships between sonic material produced on the piano and various metallic sounds.
