Subotnick presides over his onstage studio, revisiting his 1967 piece Silver Apples of the Moon live. Then, out of complete darkness emerges Crowds and Power, a media tone poem for voice, electronic sound, and live imagery inspired by Elias Canetti’s troubling and eternally relevant book. Vocalist Joan La Barbara performs the central character and Berlin-based artist Lillevan provides a live visual environment in this world premiere performance.
