IonSound Project’s spring residency concert at Pitt will include a wide array of music from Arvo Pärt’s meditative Spiegel im Spiegel to the pop sensibilities of Telephone Book by Michael Torke. The program also includes Berio’s virtuosic Sequenza VIII for solo violin, John Mackey’s Breakdown Tango, and Jonathan Kolm’s Trio for Clarinet, Cello, Piano. But regardless of what style or era the music is from, the concert experience will be firmly rooted in the 21st century as IonSound Project invites audience members to be their collaborators through social media interactions during the performance.
“Please Turn Your Cell Phones ON” will feature live social media feeds through facebook, instagram, and twitter, so that audience members can share reactions and responses in the moment. Stay tuned for announcements about contests and a call for photographs! If you don’t already do so, follow IonSound Project on facebook, instagram, and twitter for regular updates.
