RECITAL PITS MUSIC VERSUS VISUAL ARTS
“Compositions after Paintings/ Paintings after Compositions,” a musical recital by Kim Nimrod Cruz and an exhibition of new works by Geronimo Cristobal, will be held on May 18, 1-3 p.m., at University of Santo Tomas Museum of Arts and Sciences, UST Main Building, España, Manila.
Cristobal’s works are from an ongoing series in which he uses images captured from newspaper archives on the internet printed with an HP LaserJet Enterprise M606x printer. The paintings will be displayed as a backdrop to the musical performance of Cruz’s compositions, and will be on view from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Cruz’s compositions are influenced by avant-garde movements in music: specifically the indeterminacy and nonstandard use of musical instruments by John Cage and Wagne.
In “Noir,” a piano piece, Cruz essays notions of “darkness” and “composition,” inspired by the dynamics of a musical performance and conventions observed between performers and audiences in a dark theater.
