Ensemble Parallax, a Rhode Island-based New Music ensemble, will be visiting Miami University to perform a concert/multimedia extravaganza! Each piece on the set list will be augmented by video art created for that piece by the ensemble’s video artist. In addition the concert format will be similar to that of a podcast, including additional information about the piece and the composer, delivered in various formats.
The lecture, delivered by ensemble director and conductor Peyman Farzinpour, and associate director and cellist Nara Shahbazyan ’05, M.M, will directly address the multimedia aspect. They will discuss issues such as integration of sound and image, the use of multiple modalities in connecting with audiences, and technical and artistic challenges that often arise.
