For the opening of its 2023-24 season, Ensemble Decipher will continue its principal mission of highlighting incredible compositional voices working with new and vintage technologies by premiering a new work by Bora Yoon commissioned by the ensemble featuring a giant, electronically interactive version of the classic string-based game cat’s cradle. Decipher will also present works that have grown out of interdisciplinary collaborations with other artists and technologists, including the New York premieres of new works commissioned from composer-performer Erin Rogers and Lyn Goeringer and the world premiere of an expanded version of their co-created dance work with Iranian-American choreographer Hiva Sedaghat titled The Sound Sleep Has Been Shattered.
