Butler ArtsFest: Embracing the Outsider

When: Sun., April 12, 1 p.m. 2015

In this Butler ArtsFest event, faculty will perform boundary-pushing work by Jacob TV (a Dutch composer who was sampling and deconstructing the sounds of pop culture way before mashup entered the lexicon), Henry Cowell (who totally legitimized playing the piano with your fists by calling the results “tone clusters”), John Corigliano (whose celebrated and varied oeuvre resists any sort of pithy summing up between parentheses) and Tania León (whose syncretic works reflect her mixed French, Spanish, Chinese, African, and Cuban heritage).

Price: $15-25
