A sprawling, spontaneous live performance made up of over 200 (and ever-growing) musical fragments extracted from every score Previte has ever written – redefines the conventional way music is presented to the public. As audiences join musicians facing both the conductor and the screen projecting these fragments, they together experience the raw thrill of music created in the moment by conductor and musicians navigating rapid-fire changes in real time. But that’s not all. Watching the projections go by, they are privy to the mysterious “hieroglyphics” of music, and see firsthand how a page might be interpreted as sound, becoming interpreters themselves in the bargain. BLUEPRINTS re-examines terms like “creator,” “conductor,” and “audience,” blurring the lines and breaking the barriers between them in a “symphony of small parts.”
Bobby Previte is a composer and performer whose work explores the nexus between notated and improvised music. One of the seminal figures of the 1980s New York ‘Downtown’ scene, Previte is the recipient of the 2015 Greenfield Prize for music and was a Guggenheim Foundation Fellow in 2012. He has received multiple awards for composition from the NEA, NYFA, NYSCA, New Music USA, The Jerome Foundation, The New York State Music Fund, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, and the American Music Center. Mr. Previte has been an artist-in-residence at the Rockefeller Foundation in Bellagio, Italy, Civitella Ranieri, The Montalvo Arts Center, The Hermitage Artist Retreat, and nine times at the MacDowell Colony.
