Bang on a Can: Repetition and Difference
Featuring Violinist Todd Reynolds
Thursday, July 9, 7:30pm
The Jewish Museum

Tied to the exhibition, Repetition and Difference, which explores how subtle disruptions in form, color, or design can reveal intriguing information about a work's creation and meaning, this performance by violinist Todd Reynolds highlights difference and repetition in music. The program continues the Jewish Museum and Bang on a Can's partnership to produce a series of dynamic musical performances at the Museum inspired by the Museum's diverse slate of exhibitions.

A forerunner in the expansion of the violin beyond its classical and "wood-bound" tradition, Todd Reynolds electrifies in concert, weaving together composed and improvised segments, and making use of computer technology and digital loops to sculpt his sounds in real time, seamlessly integrating minimalist, pop, Jazz, Indian, African, Celtic and indigenous folk music into his own sonic blend. The violinist of choice for a generation of New York composers, particularly those who trace their influences to the minimalists of downtown New York, this program explores repetition and difference in music for violin and electronics by Bang on a Can co-founders Michael Gordon and David Lang, expressivist/post-minimalist Ingram Marshall, and by Todd Reynolds himself.

Through over 350 historic objects from the Museum's collection and recent works by contemporary artists, Repetition and Difference explores how subtle disruptions in form, color, or design can reveal intriguing information about a work's creation and meaning. Large groups of seemingly identical objects, including silver coins struck in ancient Lebanon and 19th-century Iranian marriage contracts, are juxtaposed with recent works by artists including Abraham Cruzvillegas, N. Dash, and Hank Willis Thomas. Repetition and Difference is on view through August 16, 2015.

Tickets: $18 adults; $15 students and seniors; $12 Jewish Museum and Bang on a Can List members
