Local violinist, composer, and founder of The Happy Maladies Eddy Kwon draws inspiration from Eric K M Clark’s Deprivation Music for his work a r c h i p e l a g o. Performed by a string quartet, each musician’s score is the exact same piece of music—but with variety of conflicts confusing their senses, none of them can see or hear what they are playing. By disrupting the dynamic of ensemble performers, experimenting with total sensory deprivation, and playing with audience perceptions of what a composition is and isn’t, Eddy Kwon presents a piece that challenges the audience almost as much as it does the performers.
