New sounds in music
What is this thing we call music, and how do we bring it to life? Come examine how music expresses the collision of our culture and environment, beginning with the 2017 work An Elemental Thing by Liza Lim, composer of this season’s opera Tree of Codes. The tactile and ephemeral aspects of music are further explored in Zosha Di Castri’s Strange Matter and Annea Lockwood’s Water and Memory, while works by Anna Thorvaldsdottir and Jennifer Walshe underscore how, in its analog and digital manifestations, music is a living reflection of what it means to be human in 2018.
