The performance of four world premieres, video art and poetry will rely on the technology and architectural infrastructure built into the orchestra’s modernist, one-year-old campus in Miami Beach. Using auxiliary stages mounted around the hall, the evening will move without a break from string quartet to orchestral ensemble to wind octet. Huge screens will display rush-hour street scenes from New York City. And a sophisticated electronics and speaker system will allow one composer to use a computer program during the performance to manipulate percussion sounds as they’re being produced.
