Machines & Strings, Pt. I (CalArts Weekend)

Really excited to announce this up-coming Show!!!

Going to be a great weekend! Xoxo, Amy

Featuring internationally acclaimed artists and faculty Amy Knoles and Ajay Kapur, this interdisciplinary project was curated for CalArts Weekend at California Institute of the Arts by the Isaura String Quartet.

An immersive concert experience, Machines and Strings, Part I brings together CalArtians from the disciplines of Music, Theater, Critical Studies, and Integrated Media, pushing the boundaries of artistic expression and elevating voices that are often underrepresented in a concert hall setting. Isaura joins the KarmetiK Machine Orchestra, directed by Kapur, performing with custom-built robotic musical instrument Lydia in a new work by Knoles.

The program also features works by Chrysanthe Tan, Stephanie Smith, Sarah Belle Reid, April Joy Gerloff, Jules Gimbrone, McLean Macionis, Nathan Andrew Turczan, and will conclude with a dance party featuring student projects Skullmatter and Future Lover.

The event is free to attend and there will be food trucks! Bring a picnic blanket and join us for music, food, and fun!

Machines & Strings, Pt. II (featuring different works) will be presented at REDCAT on October 24.
