Mills Music Now
Saturday, April 23, 2022 | 4:00 PM PDT
Presented by Mills College Music Department and Center for Contemporary Music
The afternoon concert presents a stellar multi-generational lineup of women composers and performing artists. New Zealand-born composer Annea Lockwood’s evocative music focuses on environmental sounds and life-narratives.
IMA, an electro-percussion duo featuring two extraordinary Mills alumnae, Amma Ateria (aka Jeanie Aprille Tang, BA, 2013, and Nava Dunkleman, BA, 2013), perform expressionistic noise music influenced by Japanese poetry that is both industrial and serene.
Acclaimed sound artist, performer, and instrument builder Laetitia Sonami will join composer, harpist, and master improviser Zeena Parkins in a duo that will surely “bring down the house.”
And the superb all-women Eclipse Quartet will perform “Good Medicine” from Salomé Dances for Peace by former Mills faculty member Terry Riley.
