German musician Peter Pichler brings his unique expertise and even more unique instrument, the trautonium, to Perth for the first time, performing a live composition to Fritz Lang’s sci-fi classic Metropolis (1927) in Northbridge Piazza. Experience first-hand the strange, eerie, yet wonderfully warm sounds of this unique instrument alongside a classic and enduring German Expressionist film.

Peter Pichler is a classically trained multi-instrumentalist based in Munich, Germany. Pichler has studied the trautonium since he was very young, and is now the only touring artist in the world who plays the instrument.

This is the first time the trautonium has toured outside of Europe.
