DESCRIPTION

L@TE: Friday Nights @ BAM/PFA: Miya Masaoka

Friday, March 11, 7:30 p.m. (Doors 5 p.m., DJ 6:30 p.m.)

Programmed by Sarah Cahill

Using difference tones, sine waves, and captured sound from the resonance of the museum, Miya Masaoka and her trusty koto will create new work specifically responding to the sonic qualities of Gallery B. The New York Times calls her “an explorer of the extremes of her instrument,” and she continues to delve into new areas of sound, light, and social and musical interaction. An acknowledged koto pioneer and a brilliant composer, Masaoka has created works for So Percussion, Bang on a Can, sfSound, Alonzo King’s LINES Ballet, Volti, and the Piedmont East Bay Children’s Choir. She is the recipient of the Alpert Award in the Arts and her work has been supported by the Wallace Alexander Gerbode Foundation, among many others. She currently teaches in the M.F.A. program of the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College, New York.
