Harvey Mudd College presents the premiere of “Bird Song,” a collaboration with HMC composer Bill Alves, Scripps writer Adam Novy and other performers and designers. This one-act theatrical and musical performance is in the form of a shadow play, in which characters are depicted through their silhouettes cast on a rear-projected screen, a form inspired by ancient theater traditions and modern technology. Performers will include the HMC American Gamelan together with singers and actors. The program also includes a new work for microtonal keyboard, cello, and gamelan instruments by composer Akshaya Avril Tucker.

The concert is free and open to the public.
