Colonel Mustard’s Famous Audio Visual Show
The Colonel (in the Conservatory) with the saxophone, the flute, the jaw harp and a keyboard will entertain and challenge you with his ever-expanding set of performer-interactive audio visual works. Sound and music are entangled with ways in which we see the moving images. Traversing a broad emotional and aesthetic range - the humorous and the absurd switch suddenly to muscular intensity and at other times, sensuous melodic lines expand outward to heart-stopping, vertiginous leaps.
