Two acclaimed Pittsburgh artists—composer/pianist Amy Williams and video artist Aaron Henderson—have teamed up to create a unique performance of live music and video. Cineshape is an innovative collaborative performance made up of five compositions by Williams, each inspired by a film (Chunhyang, Time Code, The Lives of Others, Run Lola Run and Rope). Henderson has created five new video projections inspired by the original music and collaborations with scientists at the University of Pittsburgh.
Along with Aaron’s live video mixing, Cineshape will be performed by a dream team of contemporary music experts, including the JACK Quartet, flutist Lindsey Goodman, percussionist Scott Christian and the composer at the piano.
Henderson and Williams have been working for over a year on this collaboration—the culminating project for Williams’ year as a Guggenheim Fellow. Cineshape will provide Pittsburgh audiences with an unforgettable performance experience: stellar performers playing exciting new works that fuse the visual and sonic.
