concert:nova + Jeffrey Zeigler @ MusicNOW
- Woodward Theater, Cincinnati OH
The So-Called Laws of Nature
Energy, light, movement, and a dynamic flow of relationship between opposites, all are ideas
central to the Starns Brothers’ “Gravity of Light” project presented this fall by the Cincinnati Art
Museum and FotoFocus. The icy blue radiance of the carbon arc lamp to the monumentally
scaled photographs of the exhibition serve as the subject for concert:nova’s program of modern
percussion quartet works.
The art is transformed into pulse, rhythm and linear sonic structure in works by David Lang,
Charles Griffin and Paul Lansky. The MamLuft&Co.Dance adds the element of physical
movement to segments of the program, while four concert:nova percussionists play with the laws
of sound in motion to heat up the stage of the Cincinnati Art Museum’s auditorium.
The Starns Brothers “Gravity of Light” exhibit is installed at the Holy Cross –Immaculata
Monastery in Mt. Adams from October 6 – December 30, 2012.
The Gravity of Light exhibition is sponsored jointly between the Cincinnati Art Museum and FOTOFOCUS. Go to fotofocus.com for more FotoFocus exhibit info; mamluftcodance.org to see more on this extraordinary dance company; cincinnatiart.com
