Images and Music share a common language of movement. This evening explores moving images and sounds across and between media.
Images is a concert event featuring a mingling of live and electronic sound, a set of animated “shorts” created by New College students and faculty, and a set of music by Grand Electric, a duo of electric guitar and piano. More than an evening of sound and music, this program is an event and experience that will invite the audience to experience sound with a sense of space and animated visuals.

A short set of works for four-channel surround-sound audio will open the concert. These works move sound around the corners of the space, immersing the audience. Following this, pianist Aaron Wunsch will perform Debussy's startling and imagistic solo L'isle joyeuse, a piece from 1904 based on a painting by Jean-Antoine Watteau.
Next, New College students Aniston Hoffman and Emma Solloway will perform original compositions for solo cello and solo trombone plus live electronics, and clarinetist Claire Thomas will perform an excerpt from an opera by Missy Mazzoli..
Then New College Professors Kim Anderson and Mark Dancigers, along with their students, explore original scored animations that turn everyday images and sounds into pure fantasy through imaginative movement.
The concert will close with music by Grand Electric (Dancigers and Juilliard Keyboard faculty Wunsch), which pairs the acoustic grand piano with electric guitar. Their set consists of all world-premieres by both members of the duo. Their music explores rhythmic vitality, harmonic color, rhythmic possibilities for delays and effects, and projects a new sonic energy from the combination of the instruments.
Come see and hear the newest of the new, produced by students and faculty right here at New College!
