Tune in to Live Constructions on Sunday, October 29, 2017 from 10-11pm ET for a studio concert and talk-back with Joel Fan, internationally acclaimed pianist and director of next month's Open Source Music Festival. Known as a "champion of new music," Fan uses his music to bridge classical, contemporary, and world music with bold repertoire, enthusiasm, and virtuosity. As the visionary and founder of the Open Source Festival, Fan invites listeners and musicians to explore the open source phenomenon in music through challenging new compositions and musical collaboration.
Sunday, October 29, 2017 - 10:00pm to 11:00pm
The Open Source Festival mediates the worlds of contemporary and electronic music with a diverse lineup of musicians and composers. Fan explains that the festival was born out of a fascination with how the open source movement has radically changed communication and the way ideas emerge and are propagated.
Listen for an on-air ticket giveaway, several selections from Fan's repertoire, and an exclusive premiere of a new composition by Wang Lu. Read more about the Open Source Festival, which will take place Saturday, November 18th at the Abron Arts Center at opensourcemusicfest.com.
