Workshop Performance by Cellist Maya Beiser: MIT Sounding: Stillness Moves

Saturday, December 02, 2017 at 6:00pm

Theater Arts Building W97, W97 345 Vassar Street, Cambridge, MA

Cellist Maya Beiser is the 2016–18 Mellon Distinguished Visiting Artist at the MIT Center for Art, Science & Technology (CAST).

The culmination of Beiser’s residency will be a workshop performance of  “Three Parts Wisdom,” composed by Glenn Kotche from her album TranceClassical, along with music by Bach, Vivaldi and Hildegard Von Bingen. The works are deconstructed and reimagined in a reactive environment where lighting designs by Joshua Higgason of MIT Music & Theater Arts respond to and interact with her music.

The 2017–18 season of the innovative annual performance series MIT Sounding continues to blur the boundaries between contemporary and world music. Curated by Evan Ziporyn, faculty director of the MIT Center for Art, Science & Technology (CAST), this season of MIT Sounding integrates the avant-garde sounds of ancient instruments and traditional practices with cutting-edge composition and technology to present various visions of a new, evolving music that defies genre.
