Harmonious Visions: Reflections on Nature Through the Fabric of Sight and Sound, a multi-artist, immersive experience of art and music inspired by the evanescent beauty of nature, will be presented 8 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 22 on the main stage of Lafayette’s Williams Center for the Arts, 317 Hamilton St., Easton.
This absorbing encounter between art and music features a two-part program: “Between Here and Not Here” is a new work by composer Frances White and artist and Lafayette’s director of Community Arts Program James Toia, in which water imagery is projected on ephemeral materials that vanish as a receding tide. John Glover’s Life Cycles swathes the audience in live performance and manipulated field recordings set against the large-scale paintings of Mark Mastroianni as captured by video artist Rob Dietz.
“Between Here and Not Here” includes video and live performance — a beautiful and haunting composition for viola, flute, piano and recorded electronic music accompanied by video projected on a constructed 13-part screen that was fabricated in Toia’s studio. Engineering expertise was provided by Jeff Helm, associate professor of mechanical engineering and acting department head, and Adam MacHose, arts campus technology coordinator, who assisted in fabricating components on the department’s 3D printer.
The event is free but tickets are required and can be obtained through Lafayette’s ticket office, (610) 330-5009, firstname.lastname@example.org. A suggested donation of $10 will benefit Lafayette College Art Galleries, co-sponsor of the event.
