Tod Machover (*1953)
Eine Sinfonie für Luzern
Auftragswerk von LUCERNE FESTIVAL | Uraufführung
What does Detroit sound like? The Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) and composer Tod Machover will ask every Detroiter that question in the coming year as they work with the community to create a collaborative symphony with sound submissions and conceptual contributions from the public.
"A Symphony for Lucerne" is a project initiated by the Lucerne Festival in collaboration with composer Tod Machover and the citizens of Lucerne. Using as many noises and sounds as possible gathered from Lucerne, Tod Machover will compose a piece from and for Lucerne. And those who are 'all ears' are co-composers!
MIT Media Lab Professor Tod Machover discusses his robotic opera, 'Death and the Powers.'
