A musical response to Isaac Julien’s “Lessons of the Hour” and Fischli & Weiss’ “The Way Things Go” presented by OSSIA New Music and Black Students at Eastman. Join us as we explore the dynamics surrounding the African American musician’s experience in classical music with “Creative Construction Set,” a work by George Lewis which experiments with the meaning of improvisation and the role of performer’s autonomy. The boundaries between objects as art and music will be also challenged with performances of Simon Steen-Andersen’s “Difficulties Putting It into Practice” and David Lang’s “the so-called laws of nature, part 3,” both of which feature household objects as instruments.
