Entry Free

Maya Verlaak will perform two works for small group that explore the characteristics and limitations of musical instruments as a departure point for generating compositional material and structures. Because of this working method, her pieces are bound to particular performers and instruments. This necessitates rewriting the piece when it is taken up by different performers, forcing her to re-evaluate the connection between her musical concepts and their means of execution. http://www.maya.ricercata.org

Neal Spowage presents some short video art pieces including New Track of Unknown Terra I & II: an audio visual filmed performance demonstrating the Beast sculptural instrument in an industrial landscape. http://www.nealspowage.com
