In the spring of 2013, on the occasion of the Center’s New Spaces / New Formats work group, the Center’s Performance Director Bill Adair sat down with Andrea Clearfield—a working musician, composer, curator, and member of the group—to discuss how making and listening to music is changing.
On the topic of changing curatorial models, Clearfield, who has been holding monthly performances in her loft for the past 27 years, had this to say:
This is a multisensory world now. People really respond to diverse programs. They may have come to experience something that they are familiar with and they are hearing and seeing things that are new and I think that that is part of our culture: We are craving the new.
