Formal Inquiry is a multi-disciplinary event produced by The Heroes that features the work of one composer, three poets, and four visual artists. All participants have been working within and against centuries old structures Ã¢" the sonnet and the sonata. The event will include visual art that translates music to color, sonnets from the last seven hundred years collaged in sonata form, and the world premier of new chamber music.
For Formal Inquiry artists are collaborating to create sonatas in three different mediums: a chamber work for piano, violin and cello; sonnet sequences; and three series of visual pieces. After three large workshops, hours of practice, dialogue, and revision, the results will be performed and viewed at Velocity Dance Center from June 10th-12th, 2011.
