A review by Talis Shelbourne of Sensoria | Ann Yi, a brilliant solo concert of piano + electronic at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee! Sensoria is thrilled to bring Ann Yi back to Milwaukee next April to premiere the UWM composition faculty and student works. #uwmpsoa#sensoria
A concert premiering four new works that investigate the ways in which memory and personal experience intermingle with performance. Utilizing found objects (e.g. some window weights)
and graphic score, these pieces seek to explore how different forms of memory engender different forms of music. Looking at what resonates with us, in more ways than one.
Featuring a collaborative work with Emily Bartsch and Abigail Campbell for marimba, viola, bass clarinet, dance and sculpture;
a structured improvisation using projected paintings; music for radios, double bass and clarinet; and a solo for clarinet, projected images and prisms.
Check it out! I am thrilled about all the wonderful people who will be performing and contributing their mad skills on this concert and it should be a wonderful and wild conclusion to my time as an undergraduate at UWM!
THERE WILL BE PIE!
Movement by Emily Bartsch
