[HvEXAS] EMPAC: "Hitting Things, Saying Things" | Sean Griffin | Saturday, January 17, 8 PM

you liking hitting things, you like saying things - thus this is the
show for you and yours! Check it (and be sure to give the youtube
videos a gander for irrefutable evidence of the rocking):

Sean Griffin | "Hitting Things, Saying Things"
Saturday, January 17, 8 PM
Studio 1 - $15/$10/$5

"Hitting Things, Saying Things" is an evening of performances that
spans work that might best be called "percussion theater". These
pointedly staged compositions use such ploys as an aurally-driven,
virtuosic game of pattycake, "theatricalized" misuse of household
objects, and other dissolutions of music performance into the terrain
of theater. The show will feature the premier of a new work for Aiyun
Huang, the acclaimed percussion soloist, finished as part of Griffin's
residency at EMPAC.

Performing will be Don Nichols, Greg Stewart and Aiyun Huang.

"Theater, film and music are by nature collaborative arts," Sean
Griffin has said. "Many of my works explore ambiguities of
interdisciplinary incongruity."

Along his unusual path for a composer, Griffin has created large and
small-scale concert works, collaborative sound and video
installations, film scores, and many projects in between. This spring
Griffin will be in residence twice, working on two new projects and
each time sharing some of his recent work with the public.
