Work by Maija Hynninen & Olivia Ting at SF Contemporary Music Until June 23

BCNM DE Maija Hynninen (Music + New Media) and alum Olivia Ting (Art Practice + New Media) are currently working together on the COMMUNITY series concert at San Francisco Contemporary Music Players. Maija and Olivia met in NWMEDIA 200, The History and Theory of New Media, with BCNM's Director Gail De Kosnik! They'd been looking for an opportunity to collaborate and we're so pleased to see this partnership finally in action!

From the event description:

This year's in the COMMUNITY series concert features two works that are fully electronic and audio-visual in concept - a piece by Finnish composer Maija Hynninen, with a new video accompaniment by film artist Olivia Ting, and a newly expanded work by California-based composer Jon Kulpa, who’s developed both the audio and visual aspects of the piece. Joining us to create a live performance element as counterpoint, is none other than the incomparable Andy Meyerson - artistic director, and one member of the powerhouse duo that is The Living Earth Show, based in San Francisco. Andy gives us a highly personal stamp on two great works for single percussion instruments, James Tenney’s piece for solo tam-tam, on having never written a note for percussion, and Amadeus Regucera’s IMY/ILY for solo bass drum. We hope you’ll enjoy this concert - the first in a collaborative effort that’s all about exploring and stretching the boundaries of sound creation.
