Recent Programs and Concerts
Music (mp3's), photos, musical scores, and written texts are represented from recent programs and concerts. Complete musical pieces and excerpts include both ‘live’ and studio recordings. There are chamber concerts featuring music for piano solo, piano accompanied by projected images, with a moving figure, and with hidden speakers. There are audio excerpts and photos from programs for piano and speaking voice, for violin and piano, and for unaccompanied violin. There are text excerpts from several programs for speaking voice and complementary music containing ideas that intersect science and art. And there is a video, electronic music, and text documenting a computer-controlled sound-installation that simulates acoustic phenomena (from microacoustic waves to those at the global scale) originally presented in real time from sunset to sunset.
