Ms. Lauten will again be in performance on Friday, September 11 - 7PM
at the New Museum of Contemporary Art, 235 Bowery in Manhattan. The
evening, again in connection with the Howl Festival, will be shared with
Ms. Lauten's friends Arthur's Landing, a band devoted to keeping alive
the music of the late Arthur Russell.
This concert will feature Ms. Lauten performing her S.O.S.W.T.C. for
solo synthesizer, written in reaction to the 9/11 tragedy, in an emotional
state immediately transferred to the keyboard. The composer has written,
'If the piece was composed in reaction to the events surrounding the
World Trade Center collapse, it is neither morbid nor elegiac. It is
simply, in a Buddhist sense, a comment on reality with out judgment, a
meditation on the collective consciousness of the time and a healing
intent for the departed spirits of the Twin Towers.'
Tickets for the September 11 performance are $10 for New Museum members
and $12 for the general public. For more information, call 212-219-1222
