Established in 2015, Sound in Sculpture is an annual multidisciplinary event in which student composers are invited to respond to works in Landmarks’ collection. Presented in partnership with Texas Performing Arts and the Sarah and Ernest Butler School of Music, the event offers a unique way to engage with Landmarks and ignites new understanding of the collection.
Previous compositions for Sound in Sculpture have ranged from brass quartets and piano solos to voice and instrumental arrangements. Some performances have even incorporated dance, electronic noisemakers, and chance systems which inform actions within the compositions.
Held each spring, Sound in Sculpture is always free and open to the public.
This year, the popular multidisciplinary event will feature compositions by Butler School of Music students, Kevin Charoensri, Maxwell Franko, Josiah Garza, and Jingchao (Ginny) Wang, inspired by Simone Leigh's Sentinel IVand Jennifer Steinkamp's EON.
