A Recital for Terry Adkins
George Lewis / Ensemble Pamplemousse
Oct 12 2016
From pioneering composer and pioneering electronic musician George Lewis comes this homage to the artist, performer, and multi-instrumentalist Terry Adkins. Adkins, who passed away in 2014, was celebrated for his Recitals, which began as live performances within his gallery installations. A Recital For Terry Adkins is a large-scale open-form ritual with live interaction between instruments, electronic sounds, and digitized still and moving images drawn from the work of Adkins, and one of his signal influences, Romare Bearden, a key figure of the Harlem Renaissance.
