2022 MATA Festival

Curated by Darius Jones

The magical process of transformation, creation, and combined perspectives is the through line for this evening. We will listen to a color, engage in ritual, hear a canvas sing, and understand why the world of New Music is so special.

Vicente Hansen: Beauchamp-Feuillet N.2
Cameron Graham: Life in Pink
Jess Rowland: Music for Cell Phone and Piano
Naftali Schindler: Chants, Pastorals, and Antiphons of the New Moon
Mengmeng Wang: The sounds I can hear when I miss you
June Young Will Kim: Black, Emerald
Hakan Ulus: Auslöschung II*

*This work will be presented as a sound installation in the Roulette lobby, come early to listen!
