A\VISIONS 1, the first showcase of this festival, is presented on May 28th at 8 pm. An evening dedicated to distillations of classical instrumentation for the 21st century, this showcase brings together three homegrown and international artists. New York’s Morgan Packard and Joshue Ott join forces to present Tremble*, a multi-disciplinary dimensional composition that is guaranteed to take audiences by surprise with its unexpected twists and turns. Local electro-acoustic composer Nicolas Bernier presents Les Arbres***, an adventurous composition that processes violin, violoncello, and vibraphone into a surround-sound, somnambulant stream of consciousness. Meanwhile, Murcof’s Fernando Corona**, Mexico’s most high-profile electronic composers of this decade, brings a much-needed spark of innovation and freshness to classically influenced electronic composition. This will be Murcof’s North American premiere with the visual accompaniment by Italian duo xx+xy.
