Sōnarts: A Collaborative Camp for Musicians and Artists

This summer, MidCoast Music Academy (MCMA) and the Center for Maine Contemporary Art  are combining to create a unique two-week summer camp experience. Student artists and musicians will collaborate to create an interactive, performance based art piece. This multimedia work will be in reference to the CMCA gallery installation, Will O’ the Wisp, by artists Joy Feasley and Paul Swenbeck. Students will work with teaching artists to create an interactive element, using visual and audio narratives. The final product will include a performance element and will be open to the public as is safely allowed.

Open equally to musicians and artists!

Tom Luther is an improvising composer, pianist, and media artist working in acoustic and electronic environments. He has performed throughout the state of Maine with his modern jazz group TLQ (Tom Luther Quintet), an ambient music trio called Algorithm, and as a soloist. Luther is also a media artist, working with video, live installations, and interactive objects. In his work, Luther applies traditional composition, improvisation, generative, and interactive techniques, drawing freely from his experiences in numerous musical forms. The messages and stories are universal, and genre is simply a cultural idiom appropriate to a certain group at a certain time.

Annie Bailey is a multimedia visual artist born and raised in Tenants Harbor, Maine. Described as “hovering between abstraction and impressionistic realism,” her work celebrates the range of one’s creative potential, from control to chaos, through the lens of maritime culture. She earned her BFA at the Rhode Island School of Design in 2010.
