Landmark to Lowertown: Jay Afrisando
May 8 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pmFREE
Exploring the Music of Your Office – interactive sound art
Feeling bored in your office? Want something fun to do over the lunch hour? Stop by this interactive sound installation, which turns office objects into musical instruments you can play (see a sample). See how a clacky computer keyboard, a cacophonous external hard drive, a scratchy notebook, an old mobile phone, and other everyday objects can be amplified and processed to create music. People of all ages are invited to explore the world of sound with composer Jay Afrisando.
Welcome to the 5th season of Landmark to Lowertown: weekday performances of new music held in the beautiful public spaces of downtown Saint Paul! Continuing the tradition, this season’s composer/performers are past awardees of the Minnesota Emerging Composer Award (MECA). Each of these artists recently received funding to pursue a musical project that stretched them in new directions. These performances enable you to experience that creative outcome and hear new work developed over the past year. All events in this series are free and open to the public.
This season’s performances take place indoors & outdoors between March-June 2019, and feature winners of the 2016 MECA.
