BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The UB Art Gallery will host a musical performance by the Open Music Ensemble on Sept. 15 at 5 p.m. The performance, Sound and Text, will feature the work of experimental composers with connections to Western New York.

In addition, an installation of graphic scores, sound poetry and text scores from the UB Music Library's "Treasure Room," on view at UB Art Gallery Sept. 8–22, will provide a visual context for the performance by illustrating various means of recording unconventional scores.

UB Art Gallery located in the Center for the Arts on the UB North (Amherst) Campus, is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., with extended hours on Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. For more information, call 645-6912. The performance and installation are free and open to the public.

The Open Music Ensemble is presented by the Open Music Foundation, which fosters the distinctly American tradition of experimentation and innovation in music, through promotion of artistic musical works employing unconventional, open-form, experimental -- including graphic and pictographic -- means of notation, performance practice and representation.

The UB Art Gallery is funded by The Visual Arts Building Fund, The Seymour H. Knox Foundation Fine Arts Fund and The Fine Arts Center Endowment.
