Mutant Pianos: A Long Island Composers Alliance ConcertSaturday, November 12, 2 p.m. Parrish Art Museum, 25 Jobs Lane, Southampton
“Mutant Pianos” is a celebration of electronic music by two Long Island composers, Herb Deutsch—coinventor of the Moog Synthesizer—and George Cork Maul, pianist and performance art specialist. Part of an ongoing dialogue and improvisation between Deutsch and Maul, “Mutant Pianos” combines live musical performance, informal lecture and hands-on experience. The concert will also include a “Paint and Play.” In that piece, which will conclude the program, artist Steve Haweeli will paint what he hears as the composers play what they see. Tickets are $10 for Parrish members, $12 for nonmembers, and are available at parrishart.org or at the door.
Finest in World Cinema Presents The Mill and the CrossSunday, November 13, 4 p.m. Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center
The Sundance Film Festival was wowed by this drama inspired by Pieter Bruegel the Elder’s 1564 painting The Way to Calvary, starring Rutger Hauer, Charlotte Rampling and Michael York. As the classic work of art comes to life, you’ll be wowed as well.
