MATA Festival 2012 Composer Cecilia Lopez
Roulette , Boerum Hill Thursday April 19 2012 19:30
Composer-performers are the stars of this second concert in this annual fest dedicated to emerging musical talents from around the world. These aren't your typical "singer-songwriters": Cecilia Lopez's instrument of choice tonight is sheet metal, while Eli Keszler has created a mechanized sculpture out of piano innards. Lesley Flanigan overlays vocal and instrumental lines with electronic manipulations and found objects in Amplifications. Also on the menu are excerpts from new operas by Matt Marks and Kate Soper, and the second part of Jacob Cooper's video piece, Triptych.
