The Frontwave New Music Festival: Intermedia

Mar 29, 2014 1:30 PM
Registration Closed

Intermedia: Music with dance, electroacoustic, and audio-visual elements. This concert features a full-length performance of Gregory Wanamaker’s A Story Within a Story, a multimedia collaboration with 2014 MacArthur Fellowship Award winner Carrie Mae Weems. The piece explores the public discourse surrounding the American civil-rights movement, and incorporates a six-piece chamber ensemble, dance, video, and audio footage from the period. PBA’s own Susan Joyce will make an appearance on the concert, bringing her prowess at the piano to bear the synthesizer.

Wannamaker is the guest composer for Frontwave 2014.
