Stephen F. Lilly presents Collaborative Commission, a personalized conceptual sound artwork available through DCAC’s Experience Auction. Through this experience, one patron will have the opportunity to work with Lilly on a short (one minute or one page), electronic, vocal, instrumental, or theatrical work. The patron will meet with Lilly to discuss ways in which the piece can be tailored to them given the constraints of his compositional aesthetic.

The exact nature of the collaboration will be informed by the patron. They can act as the work’s first performer or take a more active role in the creation of the work, e.g. contributing to the abstract sound world of an electronic composition or generating text to be explored in a language-based artwork. The experience will last approximately one month.

DCAC’s Experience Auction will take place on Thursday, May 18 in the ballroom at the Kennedy Warren Apartments.
