featuring Adam Von Housen (Violin)
Thursday, November 17, 2022, 5:00 PM
Imagination is a mysterious human capacity often requiring us to reach beyond perceptual experience.
Inspired by the poem Géométrie by Sylvaine Hinglais, Jinhee Han composed a short violin solo entitled Geometry and devised an innovative notation and use of text. She successfully uses novel musical and aural materials in a tactile, visual, and contemplative manner. Jinhee Han will share her process and techniques (along with her score). Violinist Adam Von Housen will discuss his process and demonstrate bringing Geometry to life as an expressive performance.
A truly interactive Tutti!
NOTE: This event will be held virtually over Zoom. You will receive the Zoom link upon submission of the RSVP form.
