Amped/Electrified, Curated by Sugar Vendil

Thursday, March 10th, 2011 - 8:00 pm

Curated by Sugar Vendil, this concert showcased pre-existing experimental and electro-acoustic works by emerging composers Ryan Manchester, Nina Young, Izzi Ramikssoon and Jay Wadley who are breaking ground with unconventional approaches to classical or concert music. Fashion designer Jonathan Cohen will draw inspiration for his designs and musicians will ‘wear’ the music they perform, becoming a visual component of the concert while creating a unique performance-art experience. Performers include David Veslocki, and JY Lee.
