STUDIO @ Presents: Michel Van Der AA
October 25, 2013
Room 501, Schermerhorn Extension

Seating is free but limited. First come, first-seated.

In anticipation of the concert performance of Michel van der Aa’s ‘Up-Close’ (October 28) as part of the ‘White Lights Festival’ at Lincoln Center, Michel van der Aa will join colleagues and students at Columbia to talk about his new work, and to respond to audience questions.

Michel van der Aa (Netherlands, 1970) is a truly multidisciplinary figure in contemporary music. A unique voice, he combines composition with film and stage direction, and script writing. Classical instruments, voices, electronic sound, actors, theatre and video are all seamless extensions of his musical vocabulary. Among his most recent awards are the Mauricio Kagel Music Prize and the 2013 Grawemeyer Award.

‘STUDIO @’ is a program of experimental conversations and events spanning the fields of anthropology, literature, performance, sound, music and media arts. Curated by Rosalind C. Morris, it is jointly sponsored by the Department of Anthropology and the Institute for Comparative Literature and Society at Columbia University. Additional support for this event has been provided by the Taalunie Foundation through the Queen Wilhelmina Chair.
