Creative Pinellas – ‘New Music Inspired by Florida Artist Christopher Still’
For more than 10 years, oboist Amy Collins and painter Christopher Still have wanted a piece of music to go along with the murals he painted for the state house chamber, as Artist-in-Residence of the Florida Legislature. Still says he’s never been “attracted to the idea of putting paintings in a room and having people sit around with a bad cheese log in the middle of the room and think they’re supposed to feel something.”
He says at times, he has underwritten theatrical works to be performed with his visual art and many times, “Amy has helped me with either music scores for videos or actually performed at openings.”
Florida Miniatures – New Music Inspired by Florida Artist Christopher Still to Premiere this Sunday at the USF School of Music.
April 10 at 7:30 pm
USF School of Music, Tampa
