One of Guy Livingston many exciting, inventive, and brilliant projects, Dada at the movies, is touring in Canada and in the United States this month.
Drawing on his incredible musical intelligence and theatrical humour, pianist Guy Livingston presents Dada at the Movies: an evening with the Parisian Dadaists, re-creating the music of George Antheil, Erik Satie, and Darius Milhaud together with the original films of Man Ray and Hans Richter in a new interdisciplinary performance. You can expect a delightful, entertaining, and even educational performance replete with eclectic accoutrements (like fake ice cream that you can buy with your fake money! Very dada.)
Based in Paris, Guy Livingston's expertise in modernism has made him the world's foremost interpreter of the music of the 1920's. He has performed all over the world, notably as soloist with the Chicago Symphony, the Orchestre Nationale de France. Mr. Livingston's recordings of 20th and 21st century repertoire include three volumes of works by Antheil on the Wergo and Nonesuch labels, as well as premieres of music by over 100 other composers.
