Concert, Performance


Grand Luxe Hall, Western Front


2:00 - 4:00 p.m.


While in residence at Western Front, composer, performer, and researcher Sarah Davachi performed In The Grand Luxe Hall—a composition for amplified cello and sine tones that was commissioned by Western Front in 2016. Faintly lit in an otherwise dark space, Davachi accompanied cellist Marina Hasselberg on electronics as they re-performed the piece within the space for which it was originally intended.

Following this, Davachi performed an extended solo set of her recent electroacoustic works.
