Time Out says

There aren't many musicians out there who can claim to have played at both the highbrow Lille Piano(s) Festival and Space Ibiza in the past month. Pianist Francesco Tristano is as comfortable navigating the works of J.S. Bach and John Cage as he is Derrick May and Jeff Mills, which might be why you're as likely to see him in a nightclub as a concert hall. He'll be aiming for the dancefloor during his latest trip to Tokyo, where he's the star attraction at a new, multimedia party titled Aliens Don't Dance. Local DJs including Groove Patrol and Yuki Tuskinaga support, with VJ You and Lightning Storm handling 'visual aesthetic' duties.
