Drawing Music :: Look & Listen Festival at BRIC

Cellist Michael Nicolas

Today, my friends and I attended day two of the on-going Look & Listen Festival at BRIC Arts Media House in Brooklyn. Here's what the website says about the Festival's mission: "The Look & Listen Festival is an annual event dedicated to presenting new music in art galleries. The Festival seeks to expand and engage audiences of 20th and 21st music by providing a unique opportunity to simultaneously experience a stimulating visual environment for new music and a vibrant aural context for contemporary visual art. "

I can't believe that it's been 4 years since my first Look & Listen event...

It was an absolute pleasure to be there today! I will let the drawings do the talking. You can still catch two more days of this beautiful event on May 1st and May 2nd.
