Join us for the Midwestern Premiere of The Response Project: ON BEHALF seven new works for violin+piano presented by Brianna Matzke and Hajnal Pivnick. Each of the seven composers have chosen to speak “on behalf” of an idea, person, community or condition. Some of the works were written on behalf of Earth’s future residents, on behalf of disability, and even on behalf of two Southern grandmothers.
List of composers and works:
Will R. Ayers, A Sense of Something Commonplace
Shi An 世 安, On Behalf of the Failure to Create Collaborations That are Truly Equal Due to Inherent Privileges that Cannot Be Erased
Alexandra du Bois, Bells from the Abyss
Molly Joyce, Down and Out
Nate May, Future Humans
D. J. Sparr, Metaphor for Forging
Dorian Wallace, When Five Eyes are watching
Chase Public and their ongoing Response Project series will also present four local artists giving their own non-musical responses. Featured artists are photographer Kate Cunningham, visual artist Karla Batres, dancer Ashley Morton, poet Scott Holzman, and actor Travis McElroy.
