Joining from Seoul, Korea, Ensemble PHASE performs excerpts from Self_less, a work composed by Edward Schocker. With video projections Keith Evans, Self_Less, examines our “sense of self” while questioning the uniformity of these perceived feelings. Incorporating live music, projected and pre-recorded audio of stories from people who have unique neuropsychological experiences, such as Alzheimer’s, out-of-body experiences and body integrity identity disorder, Self_Less’ mission is to bring awareness of the connections among brain, body, mind, and self.
