5:30 p.m. doors open
Studio Z: 275 East Fourth Street, Suite 200, St. Paul
Composer Janika Vandervelde presents This World is Maya, a new work-in-progress composed for Zeitgeist. This World is Maya is derived from and inspired by scientific work that uses recordings of environments to understand and track the health of ecosystems. Zeitgeist will perform excerpts from the new work plus Vandervelde’s Genesis VII, also written for Zeitgeist. The artists will discuss their collaborative process over the years and the new directions Vandevelde’s music has taken.
Lowertown Listening Sessions invite curious listeners to enjoy adventurous sounds and insightful conversation with the music-makers of our time. Held at Studio Z, Zeitgeist’s performance space in Lowertown St. Paul, this monthly happy hour series brings guest artists from all genres of new music (jazz, classical, world music, folk, and more) for performances and informal discussion in an after-work setting with food and beverages from Lowertown eateries.
