New Music: Tigers Above and Tigers Below
Friday, February 15, 2019,8:00 pm - 10:00 pm EST
Here we are. What are we going to do?
In this new commission Eliza Ladd, in collaboration with New College students, will create a score of “Live Sound Action” (her theatrical approach to composition and performance) to be performed in the New College Black Box Theater. Ladd’s approach, at once visual, aural and physical, combines the sounds of objects and human movement with layers of primitive voice and song.
This original New Music composition will be influenced by a theme of migration: what gets carried over time across place, and the act of searching, listening and thriving as it manifests in the flight of birds, the walking of humans, and on an elemental scale of geology.
What is the sound image of our human contraption moving ‘forward’ in time and space? What is the moment of tigers above and tigers below? How do we locate ourselves? A pre-concert talk will begin at 7:30 p.m. Read more at www.newmusicnewcollege.org/tigers
