Performances

A Site-Specific Performance with Hilary Jeffery and Maya Shenfeld

Maya Shenfield is an experimental composer, sound artist and guitarist whose work ranges from electroacoustic compositions to classical and rock performances. Hilary Jeffrey began his musical journey with a trip to the Sahara Desert in 1990, and his subsequent work bears the influence of the silent spaces he encountered there. As part of their practice, both artists compose and perform pieces that are crafted specifically for the places in which they will be performed.

Maya and Hilary will separately deliver their bespoke, semi-improvised performances in the unique and storied space of Silent Green, showcasing the effect of a site-specific approach. This session will set the tone for the duo’s subsequent Music Improv Session.
