7:30pm — Charmaine Lee & Conrad Tao
Charmaine Lee presents a new work with longtime collaborator, pianist and composer Conrad Tao: Using site-specific spatialization, live signal processing, and fixed media, the piece will explore a variety of sonic environments—each a meditation on both the mechanical and human qualities of vocal and electronic sound. Their collaboration is a celebration of hybridity, weaving together diverse influences from ASMR, drone, free improvisation, ambient, and the 80s power ballad.
8:15pm — Anthony Roth Costanzo
Anthony features his collaborations in the world of opera, an intimate set for voice and piano.
9:20pm — Jane Sheldon
Sheldon presents an original composition, poem for a dried up river, setting a poem by British poet Alice Oswald. Collaborators include Jeffrey Gavett (conductor), Sarah Brailey (soprano), Elizabeth Gadsby (co-creator/designer), and Danielle Micich (choreographic consultant).
