FirstWorks presents a site-specific performance installation, Recursion and Release, commissioned from Boston’s MASARY Studios, to premiere at the historic Grace Church during downtown Providence’s Three Nights of Lights celebration. MASARY’s immersive work explores three environments at the Grace Church campus through an acoustic vocal ensemble, digital audio manipulation, video projection and dynamic lighting. The experience features a new composition for vocal ensemble by pioneering composer, bandleader, and multi-instrumentalist Kitty Brazelton. Attendees will encounter spatialized sound and light as they move through the installation.
