Baryshnikov Arts Center presents Beginner's Ear on November 21 in the John Cage & Merce Cunningham Studio. Beginner's Ear offers an immersive, one-hour listening experience that opens the ear to both silence and sound. Through a meditation guided by Thomas Droge, participants reach a deep state of communal stillness out of which a live musical performance unfolds, visceral and immediate. Violinist Johnny Gandelsman will perform following the meditation, weaving together music spanning four centuries by Biber, Bach, and Stravinsky. A conversation reflecting on the intersection of mindfulness and music moderated by the event's curator, Corinna da Fonseca-Wollheim, closes the evening.
