Experience cutting-edge films with live music performed by Loop38, including Transit by Grawemeyer Award-winner Michel van der Aa

Experience modern cinema and music like never before. The program features the new music ensemble, Loop38, performing modern music with cutting-edge films including Anna Clyne’s Steelworks, a sonic tour de force that is edgy, individual and compelling inspired by visual artist Luke DuBois’ reimagining of the 1936 industrial film Steel: A Symphony of Industry. The evening also features Michael Gandolfi’s serene and jazzy meditation the history of the world in seven acts, a multimedia collaboration featuring the dancing animations of Jonathan Bachrach, works by Reena Esmail and Grawemeyer award-winning composer Michel van der Aa, and the world premiere of a new chamber piece by Timothy Roy, Southern Specter, commissioned by MUSIQA and accompanied by video art by Richard Johnson.
