Described as “cosmic jazz” (Boston Music Intelligencer) and “like Mozart mashed up with Club Beats and Electronica” (Original Gravity), pianist Sophia Subbayya Vastek and electronic artist David Ibbett present an electro-symphonic journey of growth and discovery - bridging the worlds of classical chamber music with electronic beats and sampled sounds of the universe. Consisting of works by David for piano and live electronics, they will perform a preview of this brand-new program at Arts Letters & Numbers, musically exploring such terrain as the fractal patterns of nature, the growth of an embryo, bleached coral reefs, and rising seas and a changing global climate.
We are so happy to have held our first 'Third-Thursday' of 2019, our new monthly night of sharing works. With pieces and performances from artists, guests, local community members and Fellows, the evening revolved around the theme of 'ordinary days', attempting to rediscover and explore the things happening around us that are often given little intention or attention. Involving everyone, artists, guests, local community and fellows, Third-Thursday is a time and place for participation, inspiration, and creative exchange.
