Illuminated Sound is a showcase of contemporary music, sound art, and improvisation curated by composers James May and Stephen Montalvo. The two-hour event, on January 16, 2022, will feature prominent New Orleans-based contemporary musicians including Megan Ihnen & Alan Theisen present, Martin Masakowski, and Alexandria Smith. The two-hour event will explore the use of space, presenting a program of overlapping performances throughout multiple rooms within the Salon Gallery at the Canal Place mall to highlight a variety of sounds and styles, ranging from contemporary classical to modern improvisation. The performances will be presented in conjunction with long-form audiovisual installations, as well as the ongoing LUNA Lagniappe exhibition, to create a space in which the audience has the freedom to explore their surroundings as they wish and to tailor the listening experience to their individual preferences.
Doors will open at 5:00 PM and attendees will have the opportunity to explore the LUNA Lagniappe installations before the concert begins at 6:00 PM.
Tickets are $15 for general admission, $10 for students and seniors, and are available for purchase in advance or at the door.
In accordance with guidelines from the City of New Orleans, all attendees must wear a msak and show proof of vaccination for COVID-19, or a negative PCR test within 72 hours, before entry to the event.
