Collaborative projects and guest artists

February 14, 2017

Comparative Arts students put the finishing touches on their two major projects, Neruda’s Suitcase and a music video for a new song by indie pop artist Son Lux.

The students began work on the Son Lux music video over Inter*mester, and resumed work during the last week of January. Several guest artists joined the students for the project: dancers Jennifer Lott and Alice Klock, Son Lux and videographer and special effects artist Adam Teninbaum. The students also collaborated with students and instructors from Interlochen’s departments of dance, visual arts and music. The final product will be premiered at the Composer’s Forum on April15.

The following week, the students put the finishing touches on Neruda’s Suitcase, which will premiere on Feb. 16. Automaton maker Frank Pahl and Quartet San Francisco violinist Jeremy Cohen returned to campus to lead the music ensembles for the production.

With their two collaborative projects wrapped up, comparative arts students turned their attention to their individual projects, which will be showcased at the end of the academic year.
