Faculty Recital: Alexander Bonus, keyboards and electronics, presents Isolation Mantras
IMPORTANT EVENTS UPDATE
In-person events are suspended until further notice. The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center is now also closed. If you are a member of the Vassar Community, check out the Department of Athletics & Physical Education’s new virtual health & fitness program. Meanwhile, we urge everyone to comply with Gov. Cuomo’s executive order by maintaining a six-foot distance from others in public and washing hands frequently for at least 20 seconds.
In this recital of electro-acoustic premieres, Alexander Bonus combines historically styled keyboard improvisation with the latest modular synthesizer technology. Considered “surrealistic” by the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Dr. Bonus’s compositions have been performed by professional instrumentalists across America. In these semi-structured improvisations, a neo-impressionistic sound-world emerges from themes in constant flux and transformation: Isolation Mantras echoes the indeterminate state of modern times.
