International Contemporary Ensemble launches the Library’s celebration of bold musical invention. Join us for a program of exhilarating sound experimentation, tracing a music lineage from the earlier computer works of Charles Dodge, through the pathbreaking installations of Alvin Lucier, on to a new generation of music innovators, led by Nokia Bell Labs artist in residence, Seth Cluett. An installation highlighting electronic music innovations will continue into the spring.
This event takes place in the Library for the Performing Arts' Vincent Astor Gallery, at the Amsterdam Avenue entrance.
