BlueRail is a two hour-long, multidisciplinary, international, site-specific and improvised performance that moves through and around the halls, patio, stairs and secret little corners of the CPMC building. Like runners passing the baton in a relay race, these artists tag each other in and out of ensembles that will grow and change through parts of the building that we’ve chosen for the special ways in which they invite new social, convivial and communal dynamics. We invite the audience to take over the music building with us!
The title “BlueRail” honors the dynamics of circulation that have shaped peoples’ lives in the region. Like the trolleys that change direction at the border, BlueRail explores improvised ways of listening and sound that push and pull in many directions at once.
Over 40 extraordinary musicians, dancers and visual artists from UCSD, San Diego, and Baja California will create BlueRail’s audio-visual world.
We hope you will join us for this moving concert that fosters community in a fun and innovative way! Food and drinks will be provided.
Note: Following the conclusion of BlueRail, an afternoon of improvisation continues in the courtyard of the Conrad Prebys Music Center. This interdisciplinary improvisational performance, featuring musicians, dancers and artists, will explore, and reflect, the courtyard space.
Springfest Music is an annual festival of experimental music presented by the graduate students from the UC San Diego Department of Music–the premier center on the West Coast for experimental and new music.
All areas of the building are accessible.
