Generator Series’ ‘Sound and Memory,’ Modern Music and Visuals

Omaha, NE—Despite new approaches in music performance emerging in the 20th century, concerts still tend to look the same: a stage with performers, and seating or standing room. The Generator Series at Kaneko, part of Omaha Under the Radar, was designed to challenge that concept.

This week’s concert, Sound and Memory, will do just that with The Afield, a duet incorporating a visual component to their set, and Alejandro T. Acierto, who will draw attention to the movement of the body while performing.

The Afield, based in Lincoln, is a multidisciplinary collaboration between violinist Rebecca Fischer and visual artist Anthony Hawley.

Acierto uses techniques like circular breathing while singing or playing instruments to create a constant sound throughout the piece. For this concert, he will be using microphones attached to his body connected to radio transmitters that will broadcast his body movement to speakers around the room.

Sound and Memory at Kaneko is this Thursday, March 8th at 7:00pm. For more information or registration, visit theKaneko.org.
