Images and Music share a common language of movement. This evening explores moving images and sounds across and between media.
The evening began with a darkened auditorium, as electronic works for four-channel sound surrounded the audience. The new works were composed by New College students Hunter Mundy, Rose Schimmel, Harold Gonzalez, and Rolando Tate, whose piece referenced Debussy amidst the sounds of crashing waves. To follow, pianist Aaron Wunsch played Debussy's L'isle joyeuse.
Then three more New College students performed electro-acoustic works: Aniston Hoffman played her work Unlucky 13, for cello and electronics. Emma Solloway played her Intangible, for trombone and electronics. And Claire Thomas played Missy Mazzoli's Interlude from Song from the Uproar, for clarinet and electronics. (Video of each of these is on this page!)
The next section featured short animations created and scored electronically by New College students, working in pairs. Freddie O'Brion did animation and Hugh Robers scored Remeant; Elizabeth Barrett animated and Gillian Boll scored Kaalya; Cindy Kim animated and Parankush Bhardwaj scored Maggy the Robot; Freddie O'Brion animated and Andre Ayers scored K.O.; Margaux Albiez animated and Lev Gurt scored Rolling Through; Ellizabeth Barrett animated and Emma Solloway scored KAMIKI; and finally, New College professors Kim Anderson animated and Mark Dancigers scored Lost and Found.
The last part of the concert featured Grand Electric, Dancigers on electric guitar and Juilliard Keyboard faculty Wunsch on piano, playing two new pieces, Wunsch's Take Chants and Dancigers's Image and Gravity.
