Working with Chamber Music Department Chair Matt Albert and composition faculty member Roshanne Etezady, groups of students worked together to create new and original musical works, as well as new recordings of existing works, to accompany each grouping of art in UMMA’s Collection Ensemble installation. The tracks were recorded, mixed, and finalized this spring.
Now, the tracks are available for you to enjoy in a series of new video tours of the Collection Ensemble exhibition, allowing a chance to hear them as they were intended: alongside the works of art that served as their inspiration.
"Through this collaboration, students engaged with and reacted deeply to the ideas, materials, and forms of the artwork,” said Albert. “The process of selecting or creating music that has specific resonances with the art is a rich, creative experience for our students. And their tracks really add another dimension to UMMA’s collection for visitors.”
