IN THIS EDITION:
•Carillon, Twitter, football, and math collide today at noon at the McGaffin Carillon, and Ohio Light Opera takes up The Mock Marriage at 2:00
•R.I.P. Bramwell Tovey, British conductor and composer
•Almanac: George Lewis, Unsuk Chin, and Gerald Finzi
At noon, George Leggiero will take up the McGaffin Carillon in Cory Arcangel’s Hail Mary, a project in which a Twitter bot uses an algorithm to generate a new score for carillon every day.
“The dynamics, harmonic content, and even placement on manual of the piece is loosely based on a ‘hail mary’ maneuver in American football,” Arcangel writes. Emoji also make up an important element of the score. (Click here and scroll down on that page for details about the process.) The performance will also be live streamed here.
And at 2:00 pm at Freedlander Theatre, Ohio Light Opera gives the opening performance of Franz Lehár’s The Mock Marriage. Get tickets here.
