The intersection of music and imagery will be explored in this multimedia performance, from the beautiful textures of Timo Andres's response to pen-and-ink abstractions to Anna Clyne's industrial response to a film about the creation of the Brooklyn Bridge. A featured work by Marcos Balter pairs startling musical sonorities with Italian design imagery of the 1970s, and the evening also includes Jacob Cooper's moody Ripple the Sky, a piece inspired by the mental illness of Robert Schumann.
