Categories: Performances

Synthesizer trailblazer Subotnick performs two original works that bookend 50 years of electronics in music: “Silver Apples of the Moon” (1967), the first electronic music composition commissioned for a recording and an influence for generations of musicians; and “Crowds and Power” (2017), a media tone poem for voice, electronic sound and live imagery. With soprano Joan La Barbara and artist Lillevan. Free.

Part of SHIFT: an array of live arts that kick off summer at the Hop, harkening back to the creative disruption of the 1960s and shifting how we think about music, drama, and identity.
