Public Programs

Performance: Industrial Foundations by New Mexico Contemporary Ensemble

Saturday, August 26 // CCA Tank Garage Galleries // 7-9pm // $15-$25 sliding scale

Industrial Foundations is a collaborative project between New Mexican composers, dancers, and performers. University of New Mexico faculty members and renowned composers, Peter Gilbert and Karola Obermüller, will compose an electroacoustic piece for the New Mexico Contemporary Ensemble Collective to perform with Albuquerque-based dancers, Naomi Elizabeth Montoya and Rhea M. Riley.  For this particular piece on the program, audience members will be encouraged to move throughout the venue to experience the space in various ways.  Additionally, a sense of experiencing different cycles of time (like the life-span of man-made materials vs the mountains we see on the horizon, for example) will be an important way for the music to connect to the physical space surrounding us, as well as the Tom Joyce: Everything at Hand exhibition.
