“Just Ancient Loops” combines the genius of three people and three mediums for a truly unique experience. Israeli-born American Maya Beiser, dubbed the “cello goddess” by The New Yorker, creates radical works for the cello, re-imagining her instrument’s boundaries. To celebrating the release of her latest album, Time Loops (a collaboration with composer Michael Harrison) Maya Beiser will perform “Just Ancient Loops,” the epic and meditative centerpiece of the album combined with a film created by Bill Morrison. Bill Morrison has built a filmography of more than thirty projects that have been presented in theaters, museums, galleries and concert halls worldwide. His work often makes use of rare archival footage in which forgotten film imagery is reframed as part of our collective mythology. Morrison’s films are in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, The Nederlands Filmmuseum, and The Library of Congress. He is a Guggenheim fellow and has received the Alpert Award for the Arts, an NEA Creativity Grant, a Creative Capital grant, and a fellowship from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts. His work with Ridge Theater has been recognized with two Bessie awards and an Obie Award. Michael Harrison, who wrote the music performed by Maya Beiser, is a composer and pianist influenced by Western classical music as well as North Indian classical music.
