People, Places, Things is a film by artist Lesa Dowdy, scored by composer Benjamin Chakoian Jones, and performed by INTERSECTION. On February 27th, the project will be premiered live in the Parthenon’s Naos room with the film projected on screen while INTERSECTION provides a live soundtrack for the audience in real time.

This project was born out of a collaboration between the Nashville Metro Archives’ Audiovisual Heritage Center (AVHC).  Filmmaker Lesa Dowdy was invited to incorporate historic audiovisual recordings at the AVHC in the creation of a new work to premiere at the Parthenon as part of Centennial Park Conservancy’s ECHO chamber music series. Lesa worked with Metro archivists to choose endangered analog audiovisual materials for preservation, some of which have not been seen in decades. Lesa also collaborated with composer Benjamin Chakoian Jones and INTERSECTION to create a soundtrack for this engaging 45 minute film.

Featuring -  Alicia Enstrom, Violin, Alessandra Volpi, Piano and Benjamin Chakoian Jones, Bass.
