Join the Memorial Art Gallery for the opening performance of "Rainforest IV," an immersive audio installation created by the Eastman Audio Research Studio (EARS) at the Eastman School of Music, under the direction of Oliver Schneller, with assistance from Allen Topolski, Associate Professor of Art at the University of Rochester. Originally conceived by sound artist and pianist David Tudor in 1973, "Rainforest IV" is a sonic environment made of handmade, uniquely designed sculptural objects suspended in space and fitted with electric transducers, turning them into resonant sound objects. At this special opening event, Missy Pfohl Smith, Director of the University of Rochester’s Dance and Movement Program, Anne Harris Wilcox, and Rose Pasquarello Beauchamp will improvise a performance to which the musicians will sonically respond. FREE with museum admission (half price on MAGThursdays). Museum admission is always FREE for all UR and ESM students, faculty and staff. Rainforest IV will be on view at MAG through Sunday, September 10th.
