Artist and composer Seth Cluett creates work that explores the territory between the senses, using sound to influence our sense of place, memory, and time. Join us for an interactive concert, featuring the New York premiere of Cluett’s woodwind quartet, developed in collaboration with Nokia Bell Labs, and a performance by Rebekah Heller of A Rift Within for solo bassoon.  Program also includes Ann Cleare’s Luna for solo saxophone, performed by Ryan Muncy, and Alvin Lucier’s In Memoriam Jon Higgins for clarinet and oscillator, performed by Joshua Rubin.

This project is supported by Nokia Bell Labs Experiments in Art and Technology program.

This event takes place in the Library for the Performing Arts’ Vincent Astor Gallery, at the Amsterdam Avenue entrance.

OpenICE Library Festival

The International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), described by the New York Times as “one of the most accomplished and adventurous groups in new music,” has long promoted emerging composers’ work. ICEcommons is an exciting online archive that transforms accessibility to contemporary music. Composers, performers, and audiences can discover new works and share their thoughts in an open forum. ICE comes to the Library for a series of interactive concerts, where the audience will help this revolutionary archive to take shape.
