The Montage Music Society commissions and performs music composed in response to visual art, and every concert includes projections of the art that inspired the music being performed. Pianist Debra Ayers and her Montage colleagues wanted to address the fear many people have of new music. "Let's help the audience get their imaginations going, hearing music and seeing the visuals that inspired the music." Montage has found that the experience changes the way audiences listen.
The Society will perform this month at a private home in Santa Fe and in early October at the Anderson Museum of Contemporary Art in Roswell.
