Now Hear Ensemble: Not for the Ears Alone

Tickets: $15 General, $10 Members

The Now Hear Ensemble will present the first installment of the “Not for the Ears Alone” series, featuring music that exploits the potential for creativity using both the stage space and the performers’ bodies. These works make powerful musical statements, yet they are best experienced with eyes wide open. For this show, we will make use of chalkboards, a boombox, animated videos, sandpaper, samplers, and toy guitars.
Basica presents us with a futurist tale showcasing an eSport music competition. Shlomowitz and Diels combine gestures and sounds in their sampler-inspired works. Llach and Goldberg depict life cycles by exploring contrasts in audio and visuals. Jacob TV and Nas delve into the connection between language and music by manipulating voice samples from life-sentenced prisoners and unveiling confessions that cool-headedly dissect and expose human morality.
