A Happening by CCRMA and friends...
Developed at Black Mountain College by (Merce) Cunningham and lifelong creative partner John Cage, the "happening" was an experimental coming-together of music and dance in unlikely settings. Come to a present-day happening, as presented by Stanford students and faculty from the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA) who have been researching and creating music using methods developed by Cage. The musicians will be joined by dancers from Cunningham's company to carry the tradition of the happening late into the night!
Musical and video works composed and improvised by CCRMA faculty, students and friends will be accompanied by the dancers of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company across three separate spaces of the Cantor Arts Center.
Featuring works and performances by:
The Merce Cunningham Dance Company
Juan Pablo Caceres
Brandon Jacobs Mills
[sic]--the Stanford Improvisation Collective
Mitchell Lamar Wilcox
