Chamber Music of Ana-Maria Avram

Either/Or

Thursday, March 3, 2016, 6pm

Miller Theatre at Columbia University

This event has ended.

Miller Theatre celebrates the groundbreaking avant-garde of Eastern Europe with a series of two Pop-Up Concerts in conjunction with a Composer Portrait featuring Iancu Dumitrescu.

Born in Bucharest, Romania in 1961, composer Ana-Maria Avram’s propulsive music often synthesizes electroacoustic and instrumental sources. While informed by mathematical techniques, Avram is drawn to the dynamic nature of sound as independently shaped by each performer and listener. “Even if something is written, what is this, there on the score?” she asks. “A base from which to fly away.”

Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

Part of a special series of concerts celebrating the music of Romania, including an additional Pop-Up Concert on March 1 and a Composer Portrait on March 5
