Nights of live music and beer don’t often bring classical music to mind, but the upcoming Original Gravity Concert Series is changing that.
In the next concert on Friday (June 17), Scott Barton, assistant professor in humanities and arts, will bring a new dimension that isn’t something classical composers would have ever imagined—robots playing improv. He will perform four works that use both human and robotic performers as the series kicks off its third season.
Based on inspiration from Barton’s composition of the same name, Mystic Brewery introduces what it refers to as “a unique, never-before-released gruit called Water, Rhythm, and Light.” The beer has notes of hibiscus, lavender, and damiana.
Barton says he’s enjoyed Original Gravity concerts before and especially likes the regional representation of musicians and brewers.
