Plate und Marginalia (premieres May 30, 5pm) is an original composition for cello and electronics by Jonathan Gardner inspired by the etchings of Félix Buhot. Soundscapes of Color (June 3, 2:30pm) is an avant-garde opera composed and produced by University of Chicago fourth-year student Michał Dzitko that uses as its stage the exhibition Expanding Narratives: The Figure and the Ground.
