The Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA presents American composer, sought-after collaborator and Columbia alumnus Nico Muhly's Archives, Friends, Patterns on Friday, May 10 at the Theatre at Ace Hotel.
Muhly will present a performance in three parts: first a collaboration with composer Thomas Bartlett, comprising a set of songs built around two-piano transcriptions of gamelan music; second, an archival project of gems from over 40 years of Philip Glass’s catalog; and finally, a cycle of his own drone-based compositions which he describes as “both severe and lyrical.”
Tickets are available from $29-$59. Columbia alumni have been offered 15% off tickets; please click on the "15% Discount" column and use the discount code (NMFR15).
The performance begins at 8:00pm. We will meet at the bar area in the theatre lobby starting at 7:00pm for alumni to congregate and connect.
