Artist Talk and Meet & Greet with Theo Baer
Join Anderson Center artist-in-residence Theo Baer for an Artist Talk and Meet & Greet at Universal Music Center on Saturday, May 7 at 3p.m. Theo will talk about music composition, his work with electronic composition and his career. Don’t miss this great opportunity! Free and open to the public.
Brooklyn-based composer, performer and fabricator Theo Baer is participating through a partnership with the Kinds of Kings composer collective’s Bouman Fellowship. His work is the result of a diverse musical upbringing and journey towards emotional healing as a black and trans artist. Currently he is most interested in the physical properties of sound, electronic hardware, and functional sustainable design. Theo often works with magnetic tape, analog synthesizers, and produces hand-drawn scores.
While in residence at the Anderson Center, Theo is further exploring the development of his personal creative process and realizing new material for a forthcoming collection of pieces, including album on New Amsterdam Records for his solo electronic project iT Boy. Theo’s Bouman Fellowship from Kinds of Kings includes a commissioned piece set to premiere May 31 in a performance by violin duo The Furies at Monk Space in Los Angeles. During his residency he will connect with students at Universal Music Center for a workshop around improvisation and composition. https://itboytpb.bandcamp.com/
