New Music Concert Series Presents NakedEye Ensemble's "Time's Illusion"
(Delaware and Chester Counties, PA • October 2, 2018)—Delaware County Community College’s New Music Concert Series concludes its fall season with a performance by NakedEye Ensemble titled “Time’s Illusion” on Sunday, October 28. The performance begins at 3 p.m. in the Large Auditorium of the Academic Building on the Marple Campus (901 South Media Line Road, Media, PA).
“Time’s Illusion” is a collaborative commissioning project between NakedEye and The National Watch and Clock Museum (the largest specialized museum of horology in the U.S.). Both are based in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. The museum contains not only a plethora of physical time pieces, but an incredible richness in the variety of sounds used to keep time over the centuries. Six composers active on the East Coast new music scene—Stefanie Lubkowski, Florent Ghys, Delaware County Community College professor Richard Belcastro, Monica Pearce, Rusty Banks and Whitney George – were commissioned to write a work incorporating recorded live sounds from the time machines in the museum. Each one brings something charming, unconventional and a little bizarre to the experience of story-telling in this evening-length multi-media work. NakedEye premiered “Time’s Illusion” at The National Watch and Clock Museum on June 9, 2018.
General admission to the performance is $10 and tickets are available online or at the door. Free admission for students of local colleges, universities and high schools. ADA Assistive Listening Devices, accessible seating and free parking are available.
