Third Law Collective @ BOP STOP

BOP STOP Director, Bryan Kennard, teams up with a collective of composers and performers from across Northeast Ohio to present the first concert in a new series to promote and elevate new musical works. The Third Law Collective is co-led by a core group of writers including Dan Bruce, Chris Coles, Bryan Kennard, Aidan Plank, Howie Smith, and Brad Wagner.

According to the NASA Glenn Research Center, Sir Isaac Newton’s Third Law of Motion states that “Whenever one object exerts a force on another object, the second object exerts an equal and opposite on the first.” Similarly, musical forces exert their influences on composers. Whether it’s a new groove, a new harmony, or a new timbre, composers have always been inspired by the music we hear, and these musical forces push us in new compositional directions.

The goal of the Third Law Collective is to create a space where area writers can present original works for a unique ensemble. In doing so, the collective will serve as a testing ground for new ideas, engaging collaboration, and improvisational explorations.
