Sad news as seminal electroacoustic composer Bernard Parmegiani has passed away at age 86.
OZ Nashville’s 2014 debut season is profiled by Nashville Scene:
New York string quartet ETHEL arrives April 11 with its multimedia performance Documerica, which juxtaposes environmental photographs from a 1971 EPA project with music by Mary Ellen Childs, jazz drummer Ulysses Owens Jr., Chickasaw Nation composer Jerod Impichchaachaaha’ Tate, and activist/blues musician James “Kimo” Williams. Staged by award-winning playwright-director Steve Cosson, it features visual design by Deborah Johnson, whose Brooklyn studio CandyStations has done impressive visuals for Wilco, Sufjan Stevens and Nashville’s Lambchop.
The season concludes June 20-21 with intimate duet performances featuring composer Philip Glass — last seen here with his dynamic 2007 ensemble at the Schermerhorn — with violinist Tim Fain. So, to recap: One of the world’s leading choreographers, one of the world’s leading theater directors, and Philip freakin’ Glass will be among those presenting work in an industrial-park zone once devoid of even a Waffle House.
