Electronic Music Workshop for Girls

The Ann Street Gallery welcomes electronic music artists Suzanne Thorpe and Bonnie Jones to conduct a workshop and concert, Electronic Music: Powered by Girls, on Saturday March 13 from 1:00-5:00 PM, and a public concert at 8:00 PM. The workshop is free to the public, and concert admission is $10 for adults and $5 for students.

The workshop will provide young girls aged 13-18 hands-on experience with both digital and analog technologies, fostering familiarity and confidence in areas of art, science and technology. Girls will be able to make their own music gathering, editing, and processing sounds.

The evening concert will feature solo electronic music compositions by the artists as well as an improvised collaborative duet performance. Thorpe will present a single performance of Nautical Twilight, a multichannel solo work for flute, electronics, laptop and hemispherical speakers. Nautical Twilight is a piece about the absence of illumination, when objects are discernible, but details indistinguishable. Jones will present an improvised performance based on a text/poetry score.The piece will combine sound and poetry written by Jones, exploring the area where music becomes communicative and text becomes aural.
