Experience the music of the pioneering German composer Carola Bauckholt, featuring International Contemporary Ensemble performing a selection of her works spanning 20 years for this Composer Portrait.

The pioneering German composer Carola Bauckholt is fond of using noisy sounds, particularly ones produced by unconventional means. Her work focuses on the phenomena of perception and understanding, and her music blurs boundaries between visual arts, musical theater, and concert music. The adventurous International Contemporary Ensemble performs a selection of her works spanning 20 years, anchored by Oh, I See, written for clarinet, violin, cello, video, and two balloons. Featuring an onstage discussion with Carola Bauckholt and George Lewis, Columbia professor and Artistic Director of International Contemporary Ensemble. Tickets starting at $20.

“What is not music? To find sounds in my environment, in my daily life, is a form of enjoying life.”
—Carola Bauckholt
