This May, Sound of Late traces the influence of rituals, from communal traditions to private acts of faith.
Tuning Meditation by Pauline Oliveros sets the tone of the evening with an invitation to join in song while tuning your mind’s ears both inwards and outwards. Murky aspirations form the backdrop of Sequences by Icelandic composer Anna Thorvaldsdóttir as low woodwinds create a landscape of visceral, rattling breaths. A mythological horn meets motion-sensor electronics in Gjallarhorn by Chet Udell as old and new technologies combine. Alvin Singleton’s virtuosic Et Nunc contrasts with the vast expanse of personal loss expressed in the world premiere of Andrea Reinkemeyer’s in the speaking silence. Woven throughout the evening is Oliveros’ Thirteen Changes.
Note by note, change by change, ritual by ritual, the night is stitched together by these vivid sonic elicitations. Listen closely to the cycles of your breath as you sink deeper into a universe of sound.
