THIS WEEK, Feb. 5 Julia Miller, midi-guitar and video
Miller titles her performance “Sound and Visual Poetry,” a multimedia show. As a guitarist, she performs with the electroacoustic trio Auris; with Gimlet Eye; and as a soloist and collaborator in experimental and avant-garde chamber music. She chairs the jazz, folk and contemporary guitar department at the Music Institute of Chicago, where she is also a Suzuki guitar specialist. She is adjunct faculty in sound and liberal studies at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago.
And on Feb. 19
The Nu:BC Collective has played in Vancouver Pro Musica’s Sonic Boom new music festival for the last four years, premiering dozens of works by Vancouver composers. The Vancouver Sun called pianist Corey Hamm, flutist Paolo Bortolussi and cellist Eric Wilson “a dream gift, one of the best additions to local new music.”
Great music in the hood and for free!
