SoundSpace: Music of the 1990s
This iteration of the Blanton’s acclaimed SoundSpace music series draws inspiration from the much-anticipated exhibition, Come As You Are: Art of the 1990s. The program aims to examine parallels between music and the exhibition’s main themes of identity politics, the Internet revolution, and globalization. SoundSpace: Music of the 1990s will feature an array of post-minimalist works and improvisers from the acclaimed No Idea Festival. The program will also explore telematic music – pieces that use a live Internet stream to coordinate musicians in remote locations – and works that involve audience participation designed for an ensemble of boomboxes.
