The Built World

May 04

(Jenny Kallick, USA, 2012, HD, 63 min)

Saturday, May 04 at 05:00PM

There's music in the spaces Louis Kahn designed; just as, in his words, "to hear a sound is to see a space." ARCHITECT steps into the late Kahn's designs through video clips, still shots and watercolor paintings, and floods them with the twists and turns of a chamber opera inspired by his work. Combining the ideas of electro-acoustic musician John Downey, Jr., music professor Jenny Kallick and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Lewis Spratlan, the opera takes a journey independent from what we see on the screen while hinting at a story of Kahn's visions, trials, and victories.
