Hear the painting, see the song when an all-star lineup including world-reknowned musicians at this year’s Interplay Jazz & Arts Summer Workshop and Concert Series reaches for the stars at Tupelo Music Hall beginning at 8 p.m. Friday June 28.
Legendary visual artist and jazz drummer Peter Bodge will be joined by Interplay Jazz students to create incredible visual art renderings in real time and actual response to the music as it is performed. Tickets for this “The Stars Align” jazz concert available at tickets.tupelohallvermont.com.
This not-to-be-missed event brings to life a notion held that jazz paints a picture and visual art is evidence of a song.
“One of the reasons this medium speaks to me so insistently is that the multiple image process provides that more than one person can hang that Billie Holiday image on their walls, that many people can ‘hear’ that Miles image right off their own walls, that the medium allows me, as Papa Jo Jones said, to ‘pass it on,’” says Bodge whose work is exhibited at the Smithsonian.Visual artist & Interplay visual arts instructor Peter Bodge with his work titled “A Love Supreme,” which features John Coltrane.
