Prisms and Antiphons v.1.1 - AbStranded at The Everson
Join the Everson Museum for four thrilling concerts of newly commissioned works realting to AbStranded: Fiber and Abstraction in Contemporary Art. Celebrated composers, conductor, and violinist David Fulmer has curated an eveining of works realting to the Everson's new exhibition. The concept of "weaving and quilting" is synonymous with Fumer's vision of musical architecture; "each note, each gesture, each timbre, and each musical dimension is assembled through a lens that sees and hears a prismatic structure...composers confront their materials, either homogeneous or not, and begin welding musical design together. Each musical layer, each stratosphere represents a texture and sonority - we are constantly weaving a tapestry of sound." The four concerts will feature works for solo violin by J.S. Bach (1721), along with four newly commissioned works composed in 2021 by Vasiliki Krimitza, Bahar Royaee, and Alyssa Regent. These works are inspired by, and composed alongside the visual sculptures and works in AbStranded. Fulmer will take the audience on a physical tour of the Museum - having the audience follow him as he performes each work in front of a different work of art.
Concert dates include, September 18, October 21, Novemer 18, and December 12.
