Our New Home in Boston

Masary’s August 2019 Newsletter


new home

We are thrilled to share our biggest news: we've moved to a new studio space in the heart of Boston's Fort Point Channel neighborhood at the Midway LAB. A new home to create, experiment, rehearse, build, and gather, we hope you will stop by! Thank you to the Midway Artist Studios Board of Directors and Raber Umphenour for making this move possible. 

On July 11, we hosted a work-in-progress showing of Water's Edge to commemorate the big move, celebrate collaboration, and thank the Midway community for welcoming us into the building! Snaps from Cinematic Films documentation - video coming soon!

sound sculpture 

Fresh off of a trip to San Franscico as a feature installation at MUTEK.SF, Sound Sculpture heads to Detroit Symphony Orchestra's hub for curated, urban, boundless experiences, The Cube this Friday. You can also join MASARY principal, Ryan Edwards, on August 8 for a Found Sounds and Sampling workshop in Toledo as a ramp up to the Sound Sculpture showing at the Momentum Festival in September.

new performance pieces

A live music and projection piece asking "where is the edge and have we gone to far" in reaction to the climate crisis, Water's Edge is a performance work in collaboration with the Ad Lib Collective from Melbourne, Australia. With seed funding from The Boston Foundation Live Arts Boston grant, we were able to create and stage a workshop featuring 5 percussionists (with Thea Rossen, Greg Jukes, and Bertram Lehman) and original projection animations. A full staging of the work is to come, with support from the City of Boston's Mayor's Office of Arts & Culture and private donors! Stay tuned. 

A writer, philosopher, and daring explorer, Lafcadio Hearn is the subject of a new work commissioned by Jean Laurenz, a trumpet player, vocalist, and scholar. With support from the University of Wisconsin, we're creating a 45 minute work - part chamber music, part theatre, and part immersive visual art. We had the privilege of working on the first sketches of the piece with Jean last month. Photos by Aram Boghosian.
