Alchemy in Ritual

Alchemy in Ritual: An Electroacoustic Music Composition with Dance
Saturday, April 8 at 7 PM
Hugh Hodgson School of Music Dancz Center for New Music

A collaboration by Hanna Lisa Stefansson and Andrea Trombetta that portrays the formation of a ritual as a search for balance with nature with the aid of three percussionists, a string player, a woodwind player, and four dancers in an electroacoustic performance with fixed and live electronics in a quadraphonic setup. This project seeks to explore several levels of collaboration between composers and choreographers, and the relationship between music and dance. The composition and documentation may serve as resources for artists interested in the collaborative process.
