Meshes: Leslee Smucker
February 1, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
In her solo violin project “Meshes,” Leslee Smucker explores the strange and unnerving relationship between dream and reality by juxtaposing the music of Conor Abbott Brown, Lera Auerbach, Luc Brewaeys, Michel van der Aa, Locatelli, and film of Maya Deren. The film “Meshes of the Afternoon,” by Maya Deren is set neither in reality or dream, and it is the mesh and web of fugue-like sequences that is the impetus for the solo violin program entitled “Meshes.” Michel van der Aa’s “Memo” uses a live tape recorder, and Luc Brewaey’s work for violin and electronics (using pots and pans as ‘ghost bells’) are examples of works that connect everyday actions with the psyche–symbolizing small-meaning occurrences through an artistic realm. The program “Meshes” develops themes surrounding dream and reality, and sound and silence–compelling the audience to experience the subliminal relationship between dream and reality.
