The perennially influential and innovative vocalist/composer Joan La Barbara presents new material from her ongoing opera-in-progress, Dreams of Water Beyond One’s Depth, inspired by the lives and work of the iconic Virginia Woolf and enigmatic Joseph Cornell, with lyrics by the brilliant, award-winning Vietnamese-American novelist Monique Truong, and featuring an ensemble of voices, instruments, synthesizer and sonic atmosphere.
Tom Chiu‘s Ensemble Metrix is a mixed-instrumentation group dedicated to recontexualizing adventurous music in diverse styles and genres. Representing Chiu’s vision of a performative party band, Ensemble Metrix replaces DJs and turntables with live musicians who weave long-form sonic canvases by distorting and layering melodic fragments and motivic riffs from the broad canon of popular and underground music.
