Nicholas Music Center
A fun evening juxtaposing early and contemporary musicin the context of their technologies. Especially of interest were the music boxes provided by Murtogh D. Guinness Collection of Mechanical Musical Instruments and Automata of the Morris Musem, the musical robots made by EMMI (Expressive Machines Musical Instruments), and the glass armonica. Co-organized by RU Mason Gross School of the Arts faculty Rebecca Cypess and Steven Kemper.
My piece for glass armonica and mixed percussion, The head called to the body, was performed by Chui Ling Tan (glass, percussion) and Greg Riss (percussion). So thankful that they provided such an excellent performance!
