Guitarist Sanjay Mishra to Perform at the Clark October 12
For Immediate Release
October 02, 2001
Innovative guitarist and composer Sanjay Mishra will perform at the Clark Art Institute on Friday, October 12, at 8:00 p.m. The concert by the Indian-born musician is offered in connection with the Williams College Asian Studies Conference. Tickets are $17 ($15 for members of the Clark).
Mishra is perhaps best known for Blue Incantation, a studio collaboration with the late Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead, in 1995. He blends Eastern and Western influences as he performs extended improvisational "meditations" on the MIDI classical guitar. His original score for the French film Port Djema was hailed by Variety as "hauntingly beautiful." Mishra will be joined by Samir Chatterjee, one of the leading Tabla players of India, and Bill Kratz, whose electric bass can be heard on Mishra's latest CD, Rescue.
The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute is located at 225 South Street in Williamstown, Massachusetts. The galleries are open Tuesday through Sunday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Admission is free through May. For more information call 413-458-2303 or visit www.clarkart.edu.
