"Soundstitching is an interdisciplinary, multimedia project that transforms color from a hand-stitched image into a musical composition that can be interpreted by a musician and/or performance artist. The result is an organic combination of three forms of art into one collaborative, multisensory experience."
OMAHA, NEBRASKA: Soundstitching series with OMAHA UNDER THE RADAR Festival and KANEKO

What: Omaha Under the Radar Festival
When: July 5-8, 2017 (Various times)
Where: Joslyn Art Museum, Kaneko, Reverb Lounge, Project Project, OutrSpaces
Omaha: The fourth annual Omaha Under the Radar unites adventurous contemporary and experimental performing artists from around the country to perform in Omaha, NE, celebrating both Nebraska-based performers, as well as experimental communities throughout North America.
The 2017 festival features Omaha Under the Radar’s first theatrical production - a staged performance of Eight Songs for a Mad King by Peter Maxwell Davies, as well as an immersive soundscape called “SOUNDSTITCHING” by composer and visual artist Cassia Kite.
Along with our featured theatrical performance, this year’s festival will present over 100 artists from 14 cities, half of which are based in Nebraska, highlighting the talent and diversity of the local performance community. Artists are presented at multiple venues, from art museums to DIY spaces to clubs, encouraging attendees to experience the interdisciplinary events in a variety of beautiful spaces.
Described as “purposefully strange and thought-provoking” (Hear Nebraska) and “pushing the boundaries of vocal, instrumental, electronica, dance and theatrical performance,” Omaha Under the Radar explores the performing art fringes, including provocative new works and experimental masterworks from the last 50 years.
