Michel van der Aa is a truly multidisciplinary figure in contemporary music. A unique voice, he combines composition with film and stage direction, and script writing. Classical instruments, voices, electronic sound, actors, theatre and video are all seamless extensions of his musical vocabulary. Mr. van der Aa will hold a two-day residency at Wake Forest University, speaking with classes in Music, Film, Theatre and Dance, and Computer Science. He will also speak about the combination of live and recorded elements– especially the incorporation of film into live music, theatre, and dance performance. Details of his residency are still being planned.
