POLYGON is a new collaborative concert created by MSU College of Music graduate students, Philip Rice (composer) and Patrick Bonczyk (librettist), produced in conjunction with the Broad MSU exhibition, Postscript: Writing After Conceptual Art that explores the artistic possibilities of language. Polygon’s modernist tone investigates the relationship between language, music and visual expression by appropriating texts from ancient and modern mathematicians, theologians, and even an origami master. These texts are deconstructed into morphemes which undergo chance operations to form a sonic design, performed by singers and instrumentalists physically scattered to encourage the sonic possibilities inherent in the angular architecture of the Broad Art Museum.
