Hartt School composers Adam Lenz (M.M.) and Maria Mykolenko (A.D.) will have their work featured as part of the upcoming 2014 New York City Electronic Music Festival (NYCEMF), June 2–8 at the Abrons Art Center, 466 Grand Street, New York City.
Both electronic works will be presented on Monday, June 2.
I Looked at the Pieces and Still I Wonder Why, by Lenz, and the words pile up, by Mykolenko, were composed as part of this year's choreographer–composer collaborations at The Hartt School and performed in early March at Convergence, Hartt's Senior Dance Production. These collaborative productions pair senior dance students with either undergrad or graduate composers in order to create soundtracks for newly choreographed works, fully staged and performed as part of the dancers' senior capstone performance projects. At NYCEMF, the musical works will be presented as music alone.
In addition, Hartt alum Yemin Oh (GPD '07), who is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Experimental Music and Digital Media at Louisiana State University, will have his new work, entitled Synesthetic Moment, presented on June 4 at NYCEMF.
The New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival will take place June 2–8, 2014 at the Abrons Arts Center on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. It is dedicated to showcasing the best electroacoustic music and video art from all over the world in New York City, through a multi-day festival. The festival will include electroacoustic music recorded alone 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.
