The Hamilton College Department of Music and Syracuse’s Society for New Music present Vision of Sound, a live music and dance program, on Saturday, April 9, at 7:30 p.m., in Wellin Hall, Schambach Center.
The performance features composers and choreographers from the upstate and central New York regions. The composers are from Rochester, Clinton, Syracuse, Canandaigua, Chittenango and a former Manlius resident. The choreographers represent dance companies and faculties from Brockport, Rochester, Geneva, Syracuse and Oswego.
The program includes Visiting Assistant Professor of Music Ryan Carter’s “Bit Rot,” Carter explains his composition, “My work wanders between acoustic and electronic performing forces, with each informing the other. While there are extensive possibilities to electronic sounds, there is plenty of discussion about the challenges of preserving the technologies required to perform it. These challenges were a subject of reflection as I composed Bit Rot, a term that can refer colloquially to the tendency of software to become gradually unusable as the devices and operating systems that run it evolve.”
This concert is free and open to the public. For more information, call the box office at 859-4331 or visit www.hamiltonpa.org.
