The Future of Orchestral Garments

6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

Presented by Parsons The New School for Design in collaboration with Mannes College The New School for Music and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra

Parsons, Mannes, and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra have partnered to create an evening of innovative musical and visual stimulation to kick off Parsons Festival 2013. Students from the School of Design Strategies’ Integrated Design program and Fashionable Technology students in the School of Art, Media, and Technology have designed avant garde orchestral garments that will be worn by performers during this event. In one performance, the garments will serve as the canvas for vibrant, evocative projections. In another, the garments will be fitted with motion sensors to track the performers’ movements and contribute to the projected visuals. This is an evening not to be missed!
