Berklee Presents Musical Performances at the Museo de Bellas Artes for International Museum Day

Berklee College of Music and Valencia’s Museo de Bellas Artes are pleased to celebrate International Museum Day (Día Internacional de los Museos) with a special program of musical performances on May 17 and 18, 2014.

On Saturday, May 17, Berklee faculty and students will present a special concert of multi-channel, ambient music at 8:00pm and 11:00pm underneath the museum’s iconic blue cupola. The performance will feature new works by Berklee’s Music Technology Innovation master’s program students.  The concert will also include a dance performance by Berklee faculty member Clara Barberá, previewing a new work developed in collaboration with the acclaimed, London-based, dance group New Movement Collective, to be premiered in performances at La Rambleta on June 1 and at the Centre Cultural de Picanya on June 5.

Throughout the day on Sunday, May 18, members of Berklee’s Valencia community will present musical interventions throughout the galleries of the Museo de Bellas Artes. The performances will be paired with specific artworks, welcoming visitors to make connections between the visual and sonic arts and highlighting the riches of this renowned art collection with intimate solo performances for voice, guitar, saxophone, and other instruments. Berklee’s App Choir, an ensemble that performs with the aid of custom iOS software, led by Berklee professor Ben Houge, will also present John Cage’s Four6.

Meanwhile, in the museum’s historic Patio Vich, Houge will present his eight-channel sound installation Landscape with Water and Woodblocks (2012), which uses a computer algorithm to transform nature recordings from Hong Kong’s Lamma Island into a continuously evolving ambient soundscape.
