Sensoria | Bridges
April 13 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Sensoria | Bridges presents an evening of new music for electronics and hybrid performance practices. The concert features “My Heart Sings – Silent”, a stunningly beautiful composition by Jon Welstead and upper Midwest noise merchants Bridges of Königsberg (Christopher Burns, David Collins, and Peter J. Woods). Opening the concert are two world premieres: a new interdisciplinary collaboration by Paul Mitchell and Warren Enström; and CutUpFemmePop featuring Amanda Schoofs’ signature experimental and operatic vocal style, infused with twenty-first century electronic aesthetics.
Sensoria: Experiments in Sound and Performance, led by founder and Artistic Director Amanda Schoofs, presents transdisciplinary and experimental practices in new music and multimedia performance. This series intends to further dialogue, support new collaborations, and commission the creation of new works while promoting an expansive understanding of contemporary music.
Sensoria celebrates its fifth season with innovative concerts featuring the Legacy of the ElectroAcoustic Music Center (EAMC) at University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee’s, Peck School of the Arts. The EAMC, founded by Jon Welstead in 1982, facilitates the creation of new electroacoustic works and technologies. In celebration of the EAMC’s dynamic history, and its founder’s retirement, this season of Sensoria will showcase cutting-edge works produced by musicians intimately affiliated with the center.
Free and open to the public!
