Hi! Just a quick thought. We’re going to be doing something special on Aliza’s next birthday. In this case, that would be our first step towards performing pieces from Kenneth Gaburo’s Lingua series. First thing we’ll do, we’re gonna tackle Lingua 2: Maledetto. It’s gonna be a very informal setting, but at an invite only sort of affair. We’re mostly looking for some direction with this one. Not a final polish, just a first coat. It seemed like the right time to let the world know that we’re officially at work on this very cool piece for seven voices.
We’ll likely be digging deep into this material in 2017, but for now, the five of us, along with Esther Neff from Panoply Lab and Jeffrey Young from thingNY, are gonna kick around some vocal ideas of Gaburo’s about screws. We’ll keep you posted! For now, please enjoy this Willie Nelson song (IMHO better than the Roy Orbison version).
