Life has a soundtrack. There’s no denying it. Starting with your heartbeat, life itself is music. Absent this essential music, we cannot be. But in the modern age, life has progressed. Our soundtrack is infinitely customizable. Feeling blue? How 'bout some Blues… Feeling Green? While “not easy,” there’s a track for that. Thanks, Kermit.
What about everything else? The “everything” of modern life? Well, there are tracks for that, too. We call it a PLAYLIST. Cellist and WWCMF Lifer, Norbert Lewandowski, makes his first visit to the Winter Festival and he is bringing a playlist we can all appreciate… more Norbert. You’ll hear up to nine Norberts in this evocative performance of minimalist and futurist music for cello and recording engineer.
Curious? Let’s just say that Norbert spent some serious time in the recording studio laying tracks for music by three great composers of our century. The thing about this playlist is that while some of the music was recorded in advance, you’ve got Norbert onstage bringing his trademark intensity to live sound. Prepare to lose yourself in the soundtrack of modern life.
This event, like all WWCMF events, is BYOH: Bring Your Own Heartbeat! If you bring it and we stop it, we promise, we’ll get it pumping again!
Artist: Norbert Lewandowski, cello
Doors open at 5 PM.
