Performance 9


alloria_and_calzadillaThis is a fascinating and enthralling performance, which will make you gain new appreciation for Beethoven’s Ninth (both as music and as idea), and the experimental virtuosity of visual artists and classical pianists.  In the tradition of John Cage’s prepared piano, Allora and Calzadilla’s piece utilizes the musical instrument as sculptural material, and highlight’s the physicality of the performer’s interaction with it as he/she plays, coaxing new sounds and spatializing sound in the process.

-Janet Kraynak, Assistant Professor of Contemporary Art
