Conceptual artist, composer collaborate on poetry performance

Conceptual artist Diana Betancourt and composer Marc Edward Moglen will collaborate on a performance, “A Call to Humanity,” next week in Davis. Admission is free.

The program of socially aware poetry with electronic music will be presented from 7 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 17, in the Blanchard Room at the Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St. Doors will close at 7:10 p.m. The program is for a mature audience.

Betancourt is a conceptual artist who studied fine arts at the San Francisco Art Institute. She has organized, exhibited and presented multimedia installations around the world, most recently in Italy.

Independent studies in Latin America, China, Norway, South Africa and Europe have led her to create works that reflect a global perspective. Her work focuses on creating dialogue that leads to alternative ways of thinking about societal and personal problems, often pointing to the universal.

Her poetry, in Spanish and English, highlights interpersonal awareness and social responsibility.

She will collaborate with Moglen, a composer and music perception researcher. In the past five years, the pair have joined for various projects, some of which are still in progress, like “Blessings to the Water,” which began in 2006, and calls attention to consciousness.

Their partnership has led them to South Africa, Europe and throughout the United States. In their passion for producing works that act as catalyst for change, they develop creative concepts and compositions with local artists and communities.

Moglen studied music perception at UC Berkeley and is beginning doctoral work this fall in the United Kingdom. His interests include electronic and modern classical composition as well as cognition of sound.
