Music & Invention: A Concert & Lecture with Tod Machover & Friends
CONCORD: How does music inspire new ideas and inventions? How do composers use invention to create new sounds and experiences? How does music reflect and transform the world we live in? These are some of the questions that will be addressed at the Music & Invention Concert and Lecture, presented by the Concord Conservatory of Music (CCM) on March 8 at 7:30pm. Tickets are available at ConcordConservatory.org.
Join renowned composer, inventor, and educator Tod Machover of the MIT Media Lab to explore the multi-faceted relationship between invention and music. Performed by CCM faculty artist, pianist Yoko Hagino, guest violinist Charlie Lovell-Jones, guest cellist Ariana Falk, and graduate students from the MIT Media Lab, this promises to be a wild ride of music and celebration of bold but beautiful ideas.
Featuring works by J.S. Bach, Frederic Rzewski, Liza Lim, Marianne Amacher, Pauline Oliveros, and three recent compositions by Machover, including the U.S. Premiere of Resolve Remote for violin and electronics. Witness how a musical idea can develop into a full-length composition, how music can mirror and adapt to its environment, and how composers can challenge and expand our listening habits. From bow-and-string to new interactive interfaces and from AI to singalong, join in for a very unusual evening of sounds and ideas that will spark imaginations, open minds, and bring delight. Whether you are interested in classical, experimental, or electronic music, you will find something to appreciate and enjoy.
