  • DXARTS performance

The Center for Digital Art and Experimental Media (DXARTS) and the School of Music present "Pour la Terre,”  a program of classic works for loudspeaker orchestra, with pieces by Jonty Harrison, Jean-Claude Risset, and Richard Karpen.


Klang (1982) - Jonty Harrison

Sud (1985) - Jean-Claude Risset

Pour la Terre (1989) - Richard Karpen

Harrison’s Klang evidences an immediate concern with “sound” and representations of performance.

 Risset’s Sud presents a “sound photograph”, as series of sequences of images of the sea.

With Pour la Terre, Karpen offers a musical chiaroscuro, of light and shadow, a lyrical obbligato on the human condition.
