Dimensions Variable: Jerry Hou
Musical response to the Work of Anri Sala + Spencer Finch
Commissioned by the Moody as a part of our Dimensions Variable series, Hou offers an original score that considers the aural and visual components of Anri Sala's and Spencer Finch's installations, both on view in the exhibition Soundwaves: Experimental Strategies in Art + Music. For this special performance, Hou conducts guest artist Lauren Jacobson and student musicians from Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music.
