Composer Michel van der Aa combines classical instruments, voice, electronics, actors, video, apps, and even web browsers in his multidisciplinary work. His broad musical vocabulary embraces these elements alongside film, stage direction, and the written word, allowing him to create works that are as visual as they are aural.
This dynamic young creative voice comes to the Armory for the North American premiere of his latest creation, a chamber opera for soprano and 3D film based on the life and work of South African poet Ingrid Jonker. Soprano Miah Persson sings live, combined with replayed loops of herself and the voice of Baritone Roderick Williams on film to create haunting musical passages and ensembles. This groundbreaking work combines live action, innovative techniques of interactive film, and inventive music to consider human memory, the ways in which we reconstruct and deal with traumatic life events, and notions of individual realities
Dedicated to showcasing the best electroacoustic music and video art from all over the world, the New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival includes electroacoustic music recorded in up to eight channels, works involving live electronics, works combining musical instruments or voices with recorded or live electronics, video and multimedia works, and audio and video installations.
Enter The Portal and follow Dante through epic deserts and alpine mountains as he seeks the beautiful and mysterious Beatrice while being pursued by his inner demons. Driven by epic rock music that pulses with tribal and electronic beats, The Portal is part concert, part movie, and part performance. It not only entertains but also immerses the audience in a journey of transcendence and empowerment.
The Nerve Tank returns to The Performance Project with Project Woyzeck, a three-part performance piece using streamed video and original music to interrogate concepts of authority, personhood, and programmed behavior. Inspired by the plays Woyzeck by Georg Buchner and Kaspar by Peter Handke, the show spotlights the human desire to succeed even under the most impossible and contradictory circumstances. It also creates mirrored entry points for audiences to engage with questions of emotional truth and mediation, as our "project person" (Woyzeck) tests his autonomy against the demands of the established social order.
