Noted Brazilian composer, inventor of urban sound events and Miami favorite Livio Tragtenberg brings his audience interactive piece The Cabinet of Dr. Strange to Sleepless Night on Miami Beach. Commissioned for the São Paulo Bienal, The Cabinet of Dr. Strange is performed in a cage. Livio twice wowed Miami audiences at the Byron Carlyle Theater in 2005 with his Nervous City Orchestra.

"...a multicultural musical delight... Rarely, if ever, has South Florida's much-vaunted musical multiplicity been so joyously presented." – The Miami Herald

Livio Tragtenberg resides in São Paulo, Brazil. He began his musical activities in São Paulo in 1979. His musical research is related to new sounds and such diverse creative languages as poetry, film, theater and dance. He has collaborated with magazines, authored books related to music and arts and played many concerts in South America, North America and Europe. He has held the position of Professor of Musical Composition in the Music Department at the Campinas State University (UNICAMP) since 1989. In 1988 he received a VITAE (Rockefeller) Foundation Fellowship for the composition of Wall Street Inferno based on Joaquim de Sousa Andrade's text. In 1990 Livio received a Guggenheim Fellowship for the composition of Utopia. Since 1993 he has been composing music for large music, dance and theater projects in Berlin, Frankfurt, Bremen, Hamburg and Stuttgart, Germany. Among his recordings are: Pasoloni Suite, Hansel Und Gretel Suite, Othello, Anjos Negros and TemperaMental, a recording of an interactive theater piece performed in Brazil in 1993.
