The Age of Aquarius

March 13 – May 01, 2011

 

Wednesday, April 20, 2011, 8:00 pm

Concert

Vincent Barras and Jacques Demierre (spoken word)

Location: The Renaissance Society
Admission: FREE
 

Based on the formal and conceptual rigor of their spoken word compositions, Barras and Demierre are unabashed moderns, picking up where the likes of Kurt Schwitters and Henri Chopin left off. Voicing Through Saussure (2004) is proof that the avant-garde, although historical, is plenty viable. What comes across as dry humor in the duo?s elegant and smart recordings, could only gain traction live.

This concert will take place in Bond Chapel located one building east of Cobb Hall on the main quadrangle. (1025 E. 58th St.)
