When composer Philip Glass claimed “Music is a place,” he may as well have been describing current Headlands Artist in residence Dina Maccabee’s solo musical explorations. Maccabee creates vast, satisfying sonic geographies and atmospheres, with signposts marked in mystery, yearning, and unexpected detours. A highly sought-after collaborator, Maccabee’s work as violist and vocalist is featured on projects with Julia Holter, Tune-Yards, Carla Bozulich, Beth Custer, Vienna Teng, and many others. But for this night, in keeping with her beautiful, experimental 2017 album, The World Is in the Work, Maccabee presents originally composed and produced solo pieces. Using what’s at hand—her viola, violin, voice, and electronics—Maccabee sends us on our ways.
A special Sunday Supper for concertgoers follows the performance at 6:30PM.
