On Wednesday, February 22nd, Music Professors Deborah Martin and Brad Hougham presented their plans for The Concert For Microtopias, a FLEFF event which will be held on Tuesday, March 27th in Ithaca College's Hockett Hall.
More interesting were the things that the professors said about their ideology. They talked a lot about things that are fragmented, such as differing styles of music. But somehow, as in the upcoming concert, they are bringing these things together.
In the concert, they are bringing music from Bach together with soul music, for example, in a way that creates a new meaning.
This, I think, hits on a large purpose of FLEFF. Professor Martin talked about how she can never go through a day without relating objects and experiences to music, no matter what they are. Professor Hougham discussed how FLEFF has opened his creative ability.
FLEFF is all about making connections to different issues which may not have otherwise seemed related. It's about finding things that expand your ideas and coming up with new ideas based on those. How have you brought fragmented ideas, music, or images together? Let's see it.
