Cineshape Tonight! Two Shows at the Warhol

Cineshape, composer Amy Williams’ and video artist Aaron Henderson’s multimedia collaboration, will take place at the Warhol with two performances at 7 and 8:30 p.m. The evening features outstanding performers JACK Quartet, flutist Lindsey Goodman, percussionist Scott Christian. Composer Williams will also perform at the piano and Aaron Henderson will mix the video live.

Cineshape is both the final Music on the Edge program until fall and the launch of the Pittsburgh Festival of New Music, led by Federico Garcia and Alia Musica Pittsburgh.

With that pivot point in the concert season in mind, it seems like a particularly good time for David Bernabo’s interview with Music on the Edge Codirectors Eric Moe and Mathew Rosenblum. Check it out for a nice perspective on how the new music scene in the Burgh has evolved over the last 25 years. Here’s what Mathew had to say about about visiting performer’s sense of our scene:

“…Folks that play in New York, even at the new venues, National Sawdust or wherever, they come here and say, “Holy crap. This is fun; this is vibrant.”
