Friday, March 2, 2012 – The Machine Breathes: NYC

Ensemble Sospeso begins its 2012 season exploring seminal works for solo performer and electronics, including Luigi Nonos La lontananza nostalgica utopica futura (1988-89) and Pierre Boulezs Dialogue de lombre double (1985). Presented in the highly versatile Cary Hall at The DiMenna Center for Classical Music, Sospeso is teaming with designer Lisa Marks and The Art of Tension to radically transform the performance environment. The featured works on the program are not only an exploration of sound, but an exploration of the physical space in which music occurs. More information here.
