      Bent Frequency presents Many Voices - featuring Nicholas Isherwood and the Emory University composition studio of Adam Mirza

      Bent Frequency presents Many Voices featuring internationally acclaimed bass, Nicholas Isherwood, and the Emory University Composition studio of Adam Mirza.  Hosted by Emory University's Michael C. Carlos Museum. Due to available space in the lower galleries, LIMITED tickets will be available! The event will begin at 7:00pm in the Museum’s lower galleries. Emory music students in Prof. Adam Mirza’s class Mediated Sound have created a series of sound installations that respond to particular objects in the Museum’s permanent collection. The installations sonify the material and expressive voices of other people, from distant times and places around the world. Beginning at 7:30pm, wander the lower galleries to hear a series of intimate performances by Bent Frequency, Nicholas Isherwood, and composer Jue Wang.  At 8:30pm, join us upstairs in Ackerman Hall for the final performances of the concert. Many Voices features sound installations by Emory University student composers, Abdallah Al-Obaidi, Luc Carbonneau, Bella Dodd, Chris Fenger, Ahmet Sirrik, and Candace Suh as well as music by Jue Wang, Fredric Rzewski, Cathy Berberian, Judith Shatin, Adam Mirza, Iannis Xenakis, and Eve de Castro-Robinson. Since its formal establishment on Emory’s Atlanta campus in 1919, the Michael C. Carlos Museum has become one of the premier museums in the Southeast. The museum holds one of the most comprehensive collections in the region with artwork from ancient Egypt, Nubia, and the Near East; Greece and Rome; the Americas; Africa; and Asia as well as a collection of works on paper from the Renaissance to the present.  Through world-class permanent collections and special exhibitions, innovative programming, and one-of-a-kind opportunities to engage with art firsthand, the Carlos Museum serves Emory University and the Atlanta community as a dynamic interdisciplinary center that cultivates literacy in the arts and fosters understanding of diverse religions and civilizations.
