Project Description

Trio Ligatura will be creating a multidisciplinary, multimedia installation that integrates self obtained audio and video footage from nine churches in Rome that inspired Andrew Norman's composition The Companion Guide to Rome. Through our collaboration with architectural historians, we will invite audiences to experience the interpretive process.
