The I/O FEST 2023 presents “The Music of Now” from Friday, Jan. 13, through Sunday, Jan. 15.
Following up on their original performances in our Strict Beauty: Sol LeWitt Prints exhibition last March, the I/O New Music Ensemble will be back at WCMA to perform in the galleries as part of I/O Festival 2023 on Friday, Jan. 13. The afternoon will feature original compositions written by Raven Chacon, Myriam el Haik, Kazuo Fukushima, Julius Eastman, Sarah Hennies, Williams students, and more, and it will be performed by Williams students and community members. The event kicks off at noon with a participatory sonic meditation, open to all, and will include sound art pieces and acoustic explorations of the galleries throughout the day.
Directed by Matthew Gold, Artist in Residence in Percussion and Contemporary Music Performance at Williams College, I/O New Music is a contemporary music ensemble open to all instrumentalists, singers, composers, conductors, and musicians interested in making immersive and adventurous music. I/O programs feature cutting-edge new music by composers representing diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and musical practices.
