Landmarks Sound in Sculpture
April 22, 2021 @ 7:00 pm
Landmarks, the public art program of UT Austin, welcomes the return of Sound in Sculpture. Established in 2015, the popular multidisciplinary event features student-composed music written in response to works of art from the Landmarks collection. Presented in partnership with Texas Performing Arts and the Sarah and Ernest Butler School of Music, this year’s program will be streamed on Vimeo, along with commentary from the participating composers, on April 22.
University students Geli Li, Sophie Mathieu, Abhi Rao, Thomas A. Rodriguez, and Rita Yung responded to the following works from Landmarks’ collection: Koren Der Harootian’s Prometheus and Vulture (1948); James Turrell’s The Color Inside (2013); Joel Perlman’s Square Tilt (1983); and Ursula von Rydingsvard’s Untitled (Seven Mountains) (1986-1988). The resulting compositions reflect a variety of styles, ranging from works for a brass quartet, to piano solos, to a mix of voice and instrumental arrangements.
