The Beal Institute Presents: Visual Music 5.0
An Evening of Original Music Performed Live-to-Picture by the Empire Film and Media Ensemble
Visual Music 5.0 presents the Beal Institute’s second-year graduate students in a live-to-picture staging of their original compositions. The featured composers are Rachel Wu, Ethan Toavs, Karen Goldfeder, Emma Most, and Steven Alcon Wyrick.
The program shows off a broad range of genres and styles, including excerpts from such recognizable titles as The Matrix and Designated Survivor; clips from documentaries about nature, ex libris, and more; a collaboration with BIODANCE; and an original film from RIT students titled Inspideration.
The director of the Beal Institute, and head of the Media Composition curriculum at Eastman, is six-time Emmy Award-winning composer and conductor, Mark Watters. Of this concert, he says that it is “the most diverse program we have ever prepared. These are five extremely talented and dedicated composers whose works we are tremendously proud to present!”
