Architect: A Chamber Opera
(2012, 63 min.) 

Inspired by the iconic buildings and life story of architect Louis I. Kahn (1901–74), this recently released operatic production is a meditation on creativity and the inner life of the creator. It combines an original libretto (Jenny Kallick), electroacoustic music interwoven with captured “architectural” sounds (Kallick and John Downey), instrumental and vocal music (Lewis Spratlan), and a video comprised of photographs of Rome and Kahn’s architecture along with watercolors inspired by the architect’s buildings.

The program will be introduced by Jenny Kallick, professor of music at Amherst College, Massachusetts.
