BCP AT THE AK: It's Just A Phase: Composers and the 1960s

  • Albright-Knox Art Gallery (map)

The 1960s were a time of social, political, and cultural unrest and this manifested itself in the art and music of the period. Complementing the Albright-Knox’s exhibition Giant Steps: Artists and the 1960s, the concert program explores the various musical trends of the 1960s, including Minimalism, phase music, recorded sound, dance, mechanical works, and performance art.

The ensemble will collaborate with Anne Burnidge Dance for this performance.
