Light & Sound Concerts Presents Glass Music Master Miguel Frasconi on May 17 and 19 at The Old Stone House in Brooklyn, New YorkPosted by s21concerts in Concert Announcement
Light & Sound Concerts presents Glass Music Master Miguel Frasconi in concert on Friday, May 17 at 8:00 PM and Sunday, May 19 at 3:00 PM at The Old Stone House, Washington Park, 336 Third Street (bet. 4th & 5th Avenues) in Brooklyn, New York. Also on May 19, at 2:00 PM Light & Sound will present a special 40 minute Family Concert & Conversation with the Artists. These will be the final concerts of Light & Sound’s Spring 2013 series.
Miguel Frasconi will present a solo concert using his unique glass instruments. Each composition will use a specific glass object or set of glass objects to explore a different acoustic property. The structure of each musical work will itself be derived from the specific sonic qualities at hand as well as the interaction with the acoustic space in which the performance takes place.
Tickets for the May 17 and 19 performances are $20 at the door, and are also available at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/347890. Tickets for the May 19 Family Concert & Conversation with the Artist are $15 for first adult, $5 for each additional family member. For more information, call 718-768-3195 or visit http://www.lightandsound-concerts.org. A reception will follow each event.
Miguel Frasconi is a composer, improviser, and sound artist who uses analog electronics, laptop, and an instrumentarium of glass objects to create music from a uniquely imagined tradition. His glass instruments are struck, blown, stroked, smashed and otherwise coaxed into vibration. Visit him at http://frasconimusic.com/.
Light & Sound, curated by its founder/director, violinist Julianne Klopotic, is a full spectrum performance series. Unique in its approach, the 2013 season includes performances informed by New/Experimental Music, Classical, Jazz/Rock and World Music.
