About the event
Hearing is, naturally, the sense most closely associated with music but how do our visual stimuli impact the way we experience this aural art? The lights and pyrotechnics at a rock show certainly play a role in the energy of the performance. The dim lighting in a jazz bar differs greatly from the spotlights of broadway.
ABC musicians and lighting experts work together to perform music inspired by light. Whether the piece is stems from a composer’s synthesis, the desire to capture a sunrise in sound, or exploring the human relationship with darkness, each piece has a unique relationship to light and how we perceive it. This performance invites the audience to consider how light and sound mix to create a singular experience.
