Kip Haaheim, associate professor of music theory and music composition, will co-host an Earth Day concert at Love Garden Records, 822 Massachusetts Avenue, Lawrence, at 7:30pm on Friday, April 22, 2011.
The public can celebrate Earth Day with a concert of Avant-garde music hosted by filmmaker/musician Rich Housh and composer Kip Haaheim. In the spirit of John Cage and other experimental artists, the concert will feature environmental electronic music, performance art, and multi-media composed and performed by local musicians. The works will include a symphony of bird calls, improvisations using an extensive collection of handmade Asian gongs, wind chimes, and Tibetan bowls, and mind-bending performance art in which a single moment of time is stretched to mystical lengths.
