Katie Mongoven (BFA ’17) recently discussed the Sonata #6 Project on Kent State University public radio station WKSU’s podcast segment, Shuffle.
The Sonata #6 Project celebrates the use of geometric abstraction to examine a variety of complex ideas in response to a solo piano sonata composed by Ryan Charles Ramer. How is music interpreted through color? Or visual rhythm and composition? Which responses become personalized and which develop as universal? The results of the Sonata #6 Project may surprise you.
Sonata #6 is a 26-minute composition in three movements performed by award winning pianist Nicholas Underhill of No Exit New Music Ensemble and the Cleveland Chamber Collective.
The Artists of the Sonata #6 Project include Amirah Cunningham, Matthew Gallagher, Tiara Grayson, William Martin Jean, Todd Leech, Katie Mongoven (BFA ’17), Kristina Paabus, Judith Salomon, and Jan Zorman. Visit contextfineart.com for the virtual exhibition and artist talks.
