noise/SILENCE Featuring the Argus Quartet (Digital World Premiere)
April 25, 2021
5BMF’s 2020-2021 digital mainstage season continues with the premiere of “noise/SILENCE,” a new concert film featuring the daring and innovative ARGUS QUARTET, co-presented by the renowned NOGUCHI MUSEUM in Queens. Filmed on-site at the museum in early April 2021, “noise/SILENCE” explores the symbiosis of silence and sound through music inspired by and in response to the art of Isamu Noguchi, the iconic 20th century sculptor. Noguchi’s sculptures, on display at his eponymous museum, provide a stunning backdrop to the Argus Quartet’s performances of works by John Cage, Rolf Wallin, Dorothy Rudd Moore, and Paul Wiancko, who joins the quartet as a guest performer for his piece, Vox Petra.
