Musical Ecologies – An Evening with Miya Masaoka
Old Stone House (5th Ave. & 3rd St., Brooklyn)
Miya Masaoka — musician, composer, sound artist — has created works for koto and electronics, Laser Koto, field recordings, laptop, video and written scores for ensembles, chamber orchestras and mixed choirs. In her pieces she has investigated the sound and movement of insects, as well as the physiological response of plants, the human brain and her own body. Within these varied contexts her performance work investigates the interactive, collaborative aspects of sound, improvisation, nature and society.
