Music Performance: Play to the Art
October 16, 2019
University Museum of Contemporary Art
UMass Amherst Campus
Musicians Jason Robinson, Bob Weiner, and Carl Clements will play an improvisational concert in response to the artwork of Leonardo Drew, now on view at the University Museum of Contemporary Art.
Clements, Robinson, and Weiner perform together at events referred to as “Play to the Art,” in which the trio responds musically to visual art. While pre-composed elements are sometimes included, each piece involves a direct improvised response to the art. The musicians may move around the room, interacting with various artworks, or remaining focused on a single work. All three are UMass and Amherst College faculty members.
The University Museum of Contemporary Art (UMCA) is located on the lower of the UMass Amherst Fine Arts Center. Directions to the Fine Arts Center
