Elliott Smith + Robert Schumann
Friday, May 1, 2009
2 + 2 = 5
THIS EVENT HAS ALREADY OCCURED IN A PREVIOUS SEASON!
In December of 2002, Christopher O’Riley performed his groundbreaking transcriptions of Radiohead on the Miller stage to an overflowing capacity audience. O’Riley makes a return appearance in a three-concert series with original transcriptions of the music of Radiohead, Nick Drake, and Elliott Smith. Each concert draws connections between the music of these popular icons with that of three prominent classical composers, Dmitri Shostakovich, Claude Debussy, and Robert Schumann.
In addition, O’Riley collaborates with artists Stephen Byram and Jonathon Rosen in the development of live video accompaniment for these concerts. Byram and Rosen integrate individual torrents of imagery; they fuse abstract, figurative, graphic, and subjective art to draw inspiration from and provide commentary on the music as it is performed.
