Multimedia reimagining of the Frankenstein story features Dave Douglas & Keystone performing with film imagery compiled by Bill Morrison
Stanford Lively Arts presents the world premiere of "Spark of Being," a reimagining of the Frankenstein story, from the jazz trumpeter/composer Dave Douglas and video/film artist Bill Morrison on Saturday, April 24 at 8:00 p.m. in Stanford's Memorial Auditorium.
The multimedia production will combine the screening of film—consisting of new, archival, and distressed footage—with an original score by Douglas written for his electric band Keystone. "Spark of Being" was commissioned by Stanford Lively Arts as the centerpiece of a campus-wide “Art + Invention” project throughout the 2009–10 season, and is also the culmination of a multi-stage residency on the Stanford Campus by Douglas and Morrison.
