Joan La Barbara
March 14, 2014; 7:30 p.m.; Gallery BRSVP on Facebook
Programmed by Sarah Cahill
In 1976, the celebrated experimental singer, composer, and sound artist Joan La Barbara presented her “Circular Song” at BAM/PFA (then called the University Art Museum). She describes it as a rigorous process piece that explores the "circular singing" technique as well as split-tone multiphonics. Now, thirty-eight years later, La Barbara recreates “Circular Song” for this special L@TE event, as part of a rare program of her innovative and beautiful vocal compositions. She also sings her recent work "Solitary Journeys of the Mind" (2011), a real-time exploration of the art of composition, weaving her own personal sonic world, and "Windows" (2013), which layers her signature vocal techniques with natural and electronic sounds, creating otherworldly dreamscapes inspired by the dreams and visions of Joseph Cornell.
Please note that there will be only limited seating at this season’s L@TE events.
L@TE is made possible by The Aaron Copland Fund for Music and the continued support of the BAM/PFA Trustees.
