Time: 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Performer: Vicki Ray

Contemporary pianist Vicki Ray offers a wide-ranging program of vibrant modern music influenced by the visual arts. Performing on solo piano and piano with electronics, she explores aural responses to paintings, sculptures, cartoons and the visual creative process itself by celebrated modern and contemporary composers. Some of the music has a direct correspondence to a specific work, whereas other pieces explore the lifelong relationship of artist to composer or demonstrate the influence of particular creative techniques. Specific artists represented include Constantin Brancusi, Joan Miró, Gustave Moreau and Sol LeWitt.
