Composer Portraits

Carola Bauckholt

Thursday, February 8, 2024, 8PM
Miller Theatre at Columbia University
  • This event has ended

The pioneering German composer Carola Bauckholt is fond of using noisy sounds, particularly ones produced by unconventional means. Her work focuses on the phenomena of perception and understanding, and her music blurs boundaries between visual arts, musical theater, and concert music. The adventurous International Contemporary Ensemble performs a selection of her works spanning 20 years, anchored by Oh, I See., written for clarinet, violin, cello, video, and two balloons.
