Performance: "One Quiet Plunge: An Arrow Pointed Down"
"An Arrow Pointed Down" is a multimedia, concert-length work inspired by the physical and human geography of the Hudson River. Four composer/performers of electroacoustic music will create new works that respond to visuals by fellow Hudson Valley artists. Performed live as a single, continuous piece, with each composer's contribution paired with the visuals that inspired it. The performance will feature the music of Ryan Chase, Joshua Groffman, Bob Lukomski, and Eric Somers, and the visual art of Lori Adams, Keiko Sono, Tona Wilson, and the 1QPVC.
Suggested donation at the door is $10.
One Quiet Plunge is an organization devoted to the promotion and performance of new music in the Hudson Valley. More information at www.onequietplunge.wordpress.com
