Anthony Scibilia: Continuous Work of Art
In this concert, Berklee faculty member Anthony Scibilia (Liberal Arts/Berklee Global Jazz Institute) will explore the connections between music and visual art through a series of original compositions and performance pieces. The featured works employ largely nonstandard compositional procedures in which visual and sound-based events are intimately intertwined, often literally giving rise to one another in a process of continuous creation and performance. Many of the elements in this program pay homage to or take direct inspiration from the musical, visual, and poetical creations of several artists including Bernard Childs, John Cage, Leonardo da Vinci, and Marcel Duchamp.
The content of this concert is inspired by Creativity and Expression in the Arts, a course Scibilia teaches in conjunction with Danilo Perez, Marco Pignataro, and other faculty members from the Berklee Global Jazz Institute. He also teaches Creative Conversations in Music and the Visual Arts, a related course offered through the Liberal Arts Department at Berklee.
