Little Operations with Hilary Kleinig & Erik Griswold

Return to Events

Our next Little Operations will feature elements from a new work in development, The Lost Art of Listening, a work for prepared piano and smartphones by musician/composer Hilary Kleinig.

Informed by research into how people experience and value music in an age of 24-hour connectedness and distraction, The Lost Art of Listening employs the very object of our distraction (the smartphone) to play an active part in a shared sonic experience, which seeks to bring people together to meditate communally on sound, music and listening.

For this Little Operations, a second stage development for the piece, Hilary continues to collaborate with pianist / composer Erik Griswold, and works with Chamber Made’s Tamara Saulwick. This public showing will feature a live performance which draws together technical and compositional aspects of this new work in development.
