Art major to perform musical art performance

November 21, 2013

Phillip King will be presenting his artwork in the form of a musical performance on Monday, Dec. 16, in the Abbott Concert Hall in the Kleinpell Fine Arts building.

King, an art major at UWRF from Cottage Grove, Minn., has created glass percussion instruments for this event which will be used in a musical performance featuring an accompanying band including a guitarist and bass player. Each glass instrument has been fabricated specifically for this event.

King has been exploring the potential glass has to offer as an artistic medium when it is used to create sounds in music. For this event he has specifically created a glass drum set which will be played during the performance. The performance focuses on the sounds that each percussive instrument produces when played.

“Expressing the emotions I feel when I hear sound is my focus as an artist. My current approach involves making glass forms that produce unique sounds,” King said.

The event will open doors at 7 p.m., and the performance will start at 7:30 p.m. For further information contact  King at 612-308-9436 or at phillip.king@my.uwrf.edu. This event is free and open to the public.
