toUch presents DJ THE WIG as part of the TOGETHER festival
if classical music is dying...let's help kill it." Classical music reinvented for the 21st century.
AcousticaELECTRONICA brings together young talent from the New England Conservatory, The Boston Conservatory and beyond to express their diverse musical realities, which include both classical and non-classical influences. The show's theme brings classical and electronic genres into conversation with one another.
Classical music has been reinterpreted/reinvented/remixed with electronic music giving a fresh new voice to a beautiful tradition. The WIG will spin with live string quartet, guitar, vocals and piano. Daring staging and dance will accompany the music.
Soundpainting is a sign language for creating live composition from structured improvisation. This is a community music-making event for any number of participants, with or without musical experience. There are no mistakes, you are encouraged to color outside the lines.
The Boston Soundpainting Orchestra will lead the audience in creating live compositions blended with pre-recorded music that the audience will hear later in the main act of the performance. This way the audience will participate in the music they will later hear, breaking down the space between the performer and audience. Visual artist Josh Wisdumb will improvise on canvas.
