EMPAC Presents: Contact Ensemble Thursday, Sept. 17 at 8 p.m.
Composer and Bang on a Can co-founder David Lang presents four genre-defying new musical works in conjunction with films by visual artists William Wegman, Bill Morrison, Matt Mullican, and Doug Aitken.

Compositions include the solo piano piece “Wed,” the densely orchestrated “Men,” “How to Pray,” and a somberly beautiful reworking of the Velvet Underground’s “Heroin” as a duet for voice and cello. All compositions are performed by Canada’s Contact Ensemble.

The show begins at 8 p.m. in EMPAC’s Theater. Tickets are $15/$10/$5. A pre-concert talk will begin at 7 pm. For more information and tickets, go to www.empac.rpi.edu or call 276-3921.
