Some of the greatest new ideas of modern music - minimalism, ambient music, chance music - are brazenly self-effacing. Much like the artists featured in Disappearing - California, c. 1970, modern composers sometimes go to heroic lengths to negate their own identity and agency, often asking that the performers of their music do the same. The works on this concert will reveal the beauty that can emerge when ego and identity are stripped away from the process of making music.
The most up-to-the-minute and least predictable concert music series in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Sounds Modern explores links between contemporary music and visual arts, connecting thematically to exhibits at the Fort Worth Modern Art Museum. Directed by flutist and modern music guru Elizabeth McNutt, Sounds Modern brings a sonic dimension to the groundbreaking artwork presented at the Modern.
Admission is free and open to the public.
