Visions and Delusions explores musical and visual space of what is real or not, seen versus heard, how those elements align or not, and a presents dialogue about states of tangibility and our own ever-ephemeral perceptions. The music expresses the uniqueness of the ensemble Collect/Project, which specializes in experimental music performance with an interest in unorthodox and deeply collaborative experiences. Most of the works on the program were commissioned by the ensemble and developed in close collaboration with the composers and video artists an utilize improvisation, graphic notation and interpretation, open mobile forms, and interactive video and electronic elements.
This is the first time that Collect/Project will appear in the United States in this formation of flute, accordion, and electronics, featuring accordionist Eva Zöllner, and the first time they present a guest artist recital at Northwestern University.
