Past Event Sound Series: Robert Black and Andrea Parkins

A man with short, brown hair in a black shirt and black pants, wearing dark sunglasses, holds a string bass instrument on top of a roof that is painted on in various colors.

Robert Black performs Philip Glass’s The Not Doings of An Insomniac for solo double bass, which includes poetry by Lou Reed, Laurie Anderson, Yoko Ono, David Byrne, Leonard Cohen, and Patti Smith. Andrea Parkins presents her electroacoustic solo project, performed as a multi-diffusion work for electronically-processed accordion, objects, and live electronic processing.

Co-presented by the Music on the Edge series of the University of Pittsburgh Department of Music.

Music on the Edge is generously supported by the Aaron Copland Fund for Music, Pitt Arts, the Bessie Pearl Snyder Music Legacy Fund, the Alice M. Ditson Foundation, the Amphion Foundation, Inc., The Pittsburgh Foundation, The Heinz Endowments, and the Opportunity Fund.
