RECITAL PITS MU­SIC VER­SUS VIS­UAL ARTS

Philippine Daily Inquirer - - LIFESTYLE -

“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.
