This was followed by a special feature presentation of pianist Roman Zavada and a live performance of Résonances Boréales, created by Montreal's Society for Arts and Technology [SAT]. In this outstanding performance, Zavada created a dialogue between the sonorous resonances of the piano and the northern lights as they appeared above the primeval forest and captured by special 360-degree cameras.
