Composer and multimedia artist Volker Goetze presents live performance excerpts of new compositions for African harp, dulcimer, bass clarinet, trumpet, percussion and New York City sounds and visuals.
Volker Goetze uses live performance combined with 3D immersive audio and 360 video to fully capture the “Unique places of Death;” places in New York City listed in the Traveling Cloud Museum database.
“Secret Island” is a photography and music project about the forgotten borough of New York – Staten Island – telling the untold stories about historic events which shaped Staten Island going back to the prehistoric ice age up until today.
The concert will consist of 20 minute excerpts of both projects followed by a panel discussion with the composer and Melinda Hunt director of The Hart Island Project. Music for this event is commissioned, in part, with a 2016 composer's commission from the New York State Council on the Arts and Exploring the Metropolis Performing Arts Residency courtesy of Con Edison. free tickets
