Invisible Anatomy

Invisible Anatomy, a composer/performer collective comprised of seven Yale School of Music alumni, will perform their original program Body Parts in Beijing this May and June.

The members of Invisible Anatomy are Fay Wang, voice; Brendon Randall-Myers, guitar; Paul Kerekes, piano/keyboards; Daniel Schlosberg, piano/keyboards; Ian Gottlieb, cello; Samuel Adams, double bass; and Benjamin Wallace, percussion.

The group describes Body Parts as “an exploration of the human body as the most fundamental aspect of performance.” The concert of seven compositions, written by the members of the group, “dismembers, transforms, and reanimates the performing body.”

The program comprises Randall-Myers’ Skin, Gottlieb’s Funny Bone, Kerekes’ Hair, Schlosberg’s Teeth, Adams’ Eyes, Wallace’s Hands, and Wang’s Brain. Each piece utilizes a difference configuration of performing forces.

The first Beijing performance will be Sunday, May 31, as part of the Beijing Modern Music Festival. The concert takes place at 7:30 pm in the concert hall of the Central Conservatory of Music. MORE INFO

On Thursday, June 4, 2015, the Light and Truth—Meet the Artist Series at the Yale Center Beijing presents a performance of Body Parts followed by an interactive discussion. The event, which is presented by the Yale School of Music and Yale Center Beijing, begins at 7:30 pm. MORE INFO

About Invisible Anatomy

Invisible Anatomy celebrates music as a physical experience. It is a composer/performer ensemble that harnesses elements from concert music, rock, jazz, and theater to create visceral performances that are both deeply personal and powerfully collective. A century of increasing disconnection in concert music between those that write music and those that play music has emboldened the Invisible Anatomy composers to reclaim performance as both a vital means of expression and genesis of creativity for them. They write collaboratively to their own instrumental idiosyncrasies and perform entirely from memory, collapsing boundaries between musicians and challenging audiences to experience music the way they experience it — from the inside.
