Culminating the Music in Architecture – Architecture in Music Symposium, LOW CLOSE VAST will be the world premiere of a commissioned work by the renowned composer Paul Dresher (“Schick Machine,” “The Tyrant,” “Night Songs/Channels Passing”). This thrilling piece, scored for 12 instruments, in three movements and three environments on the Bass Concert Hall stage, will challenge the audience's relationship to performance space—indeed to space itself— with post-minimalist music that is both “avant garde” and “rockin'.” Two performances: 7.30pm and 8.30pm, and a talk with the artists after.
