John Glover, host

Brooklyn-based, genre-bending sound-artist Maria Chavez her process for creating the electronic soundscape of NYC Sonic Scores, 2015—her new work commissioned by and featuring St. Luke’s Chamber Ensemble. Join our exclusive live audience or stream the event online.

Chavez will discuss her unique approach to sound, share excerpts from NYC Sonic Scores, 2015, invite live and online participants to improvise to her electronic score, and chat with the audience about her work as an avant-garde turntablist and artist.

Bring your own instrument to participate in the improvisation, or simply take in the kaleidoscopic sound textures of live performers interacting with and reacting to Chavez’ new sonic canvass.

This event is presented in advance of OSL’s Chamber Music Series concert Tale of Five Cities, which features the world premiere of NYC Sonic Scores, 2015.

Our live audience for this event is at capacity. We invite you to live stream the event and to purchase tickets to the Interactive Sound Installation to follow.
