Terri Lyne Carrington: Seen / Unseen
w/ Live visuals by Mickalene Thomas - European Premiere
Terri Lyne Carrington originally wrote the piece for a 100-piece orchestra: The four-movement composition "Seen/Unseen" was commissioned by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), for which the highly acclaimed composer, percussionist and activist Carrington teamed up with video artist Mickalene Thomas.
With her images, Thomas reacts to the music like an instrumentalist, rhythmically, improvising, taking the themes further: for example, recordings of the everyday life and culture of black citizens are coupled with visualizations of slave transports and mistreatment.
During the event, Terri Lyne Carrington will receive the "Christian Broecking Award for Arts Education", offered by Enjoy Jazz with the support of the Manfred Lautenschläger Foundation. You can find more about the award in our magazine.
