Danny Clay: McKnight Visiting Composer Residency
December 10, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm CST
Join for the culminating event of Danny Clay’s 2019 McKnight Visiting Composer Residency with MPLS (imPulse) and ComMUSICation, which will take place on Thursday, December 10, 2020 at 4pm CST via this link.
Over the past two months, Danny worked virtually with MPLS (imPulse) and ComMUSICation from San Francisco with the ensembles located in the Twin Cities. Danny facilitated a collaborative musical dialogue between the professional vocalists and the youth community chorus program in which both groups used graphic notation to invent their own sonic language and compose a series of pieces for the other ensemble to perform. The resulting collection of lovingly crafted squiggles, wiggles, blobs and doodles will be premiered as an animated score with accompanying footage of the creative process. This is an exciting event to hear and see the works that have been created and to learn more about the collaboration!
