JD Emmanuel Sunset Performance Friday, February 8, 6:18pm Artpace Rooftop Free and open to the public
Internationally acclaimed electronic musician JD Emmanuel will perform original ambient compositions in a sunset performance on our rooftop. Emmanuel was invited to perform at Artpace by current International Artist-in-Residence J. Parker Valentine.
Known for his ambient synthscapes that explore the relationship between the mind and music, Emmanuel (also known as Time Traveler) is widely considered a pioneer of electronic music. Layering cyclical rhythms, samples from the natural environment, and improvisation, he builds multi-textual music he calls Electronic Minimal. He is best known for his seminal album,Wizards (1982). Drawing on his interest in metaphysics, his entire musical catalogue aims to expand consciousness resulting in enhanced creativity, and deepened meditation and relaxation.
Surely you’ve seen Deputy Director Mary Heathcott around Artpace, as she’s been a regular fixture for more than six years (only Riley has her beat). A native Texan, she adopted the Midwest in the early ’00s as her home, but returned to San Antonio after getting a Master’s degree at the University of Chicago and cutting her teeth in the museum world at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. A self-proclaimed sandwich connoisseur, she recommends you order the Torta El Tacomiendo the next time you join us for Taco Friday.
