Changing Tides II – A Telematic Translocational Concert
Thursday, February 13th, 2020 7:30 pm
Conrad Prebys Music Center Experimental Theater
Extending their prior 2016 collaboration to a new level of immersive audio-visual design, in February, 2020 an intercultural team of artists presents Changing Tides II, an intercultural music collaboration responding to the climate crisis, featuring renowned improvisers in Seoul and San Diego performing together via cutting-edge technologies. With audiences at both locations, the event links 10 musicians in a stunning scenic environment created by visual artists, including Korean director Jungung Yang who conceived the design in relation to a Korean shamanic ceremony to simultaneously evoke sorrow and the recirculation of new life. Blending live collaborative performance, pre-recorded materials, visualizations of climate data, and original compositions integrating Korean music, jazz and beyond, Changing Tides II addresses our urgent need for global collaboration and blends past and future artistic expressions in a unique act of collective imagination.
