Ekphrastic SOUND! Musical Performance by Itchy-O!
April 29 @ 5:30 pm - 12:00 am
Join the Hennebach Program in the Humanities alongside MME and local and regional award-winning writers, poets, and artists for an Ekphrastic evening of lights, art, and sound!
Ekphrastic art is simply this: it is when one art form (such as poetry) is used to inspire or inquire or impress on another (such as music). So a new musical score written to honor a poem would be ‘ekphrastic art.’ This event will be the cumulative effort by the Hennebach program and MME to design, forge, craft, tune, and create new instruments from melted down used instruments in order to create totally unique sounds for the experimental science music group Itchy-O, who will then perform for the Mines community on the evening of the 29th. This will be a unique and signature experience and is open to everyone.
DOORS OPEN: 5:30pm
EVENT BEGINS: 7:00pm
