I write to invite you to a special virtual event this coming Monday at 5pm PST: the passage of time...
This program brings together performers from Canada, the U.S., and Mexico for a virtual performance of two works: David Bithell’s Subterranean, a technological exploration of isolation, uncertainty, and the hope for connection – and Frederic Rzewski’s Coming Together – a work that 50 years after its composition in reaction to the deadly riot at the Attica Correctional Facility, remains an enduring and prescient lens through which to view our world. I am so honored to be working with this collective of astounding musicians, not as a player, but this time, as an narrator-actor.
The concert is produced by Left Edge Collective – a new music organization founded and directed by David Bithell and Terry Longshore at the Oregon Center for the Arts at Southern Oregon University. Left Edge Collective composes, performs, improvises, creates interdisciplinary projects, and hosts an annual festival of contemporary performance which focuses on presenting and premiering new works by members of Left Edge, works by nationally recognized guest artists, and collaborations between artistic disciplines. Bithell and Longshore will be joined by a cadre of established artists from Canada, Finland, Mexico, New Zealand, and the U.S. For more information on the ensemble, have a look at the event poster HERE.
Hope to see you at the event this coming Monday, May 10 @ 5pm PST. Here are the links:
