Have you ever overheard the private thoughts of a stranger? On March 3 at 2 pm, Sounds Modern will present music that projects inward experience out loud. Much as Ron Mueck’s lifelike and detailed sculptures invite their viewers into the psychological worlds of the figures, music of the late California visionary James Tenney and living composers Miguel Espinel, Ashley Fure, Caroline Mallonee, and Andrew May will invite the audience to listen in(ward) to intimate meditations and conversations. Performers will include Joseph Klein, Colton Lytle, Elizabeth McNutt, and Shannon Wettstein, composers Espinel and May, and UNT’s Nova Ensemble. The concert will begin in the Modern’s auditorium, then continue with the Tenney performed in Tadao Ando’s breathtaking lobby space in the Modern. Admission is free and open to the public (museum admission is separate).
