We love short. We love the Pecha Kucha / Ignite-style talks (5 minute talks, 20 slides, 15 seconds per slide, slides advance with or without the speaker), the 14 / 48 theater style (14 plays written and performed in 48 hours) and especially Mrs. Wallyhood (5 foot 1 inch).
On that note, this Friday’s “60 x 60″ show at the Chapel Performance Space in the Good Shepherd Center looks interesting (via Wayward Music blog:
Curated by composer Robert Voisey, 60×60 is an ongoing touring program of 60 pre-recorded electro-acoustic works from 60 different composers. Each composition is 60 seconds (or less) in duration, sequenced together to create a one-hour performance. Highlighting the work of a great many composers, 60×60 testifies to the vibrancy of contemporary composition by presenting the diverse array of styles, aesthetics and techniques being used today.
1 minute apiece? Perfect! If one of them is lousy, hey, only 15 seconds to go, right?
60 x 60 is Friday, 4/17 at 8 pm at the Chapel Performance Space at the Good Shepherd Center. $5 – $15 sliding scale admission. More info.
