Opening Concert Tonight at HAU1

The CTM Opening Concert tonight features Jace Clayton aka DJ Rupture's homage "The Julius Eastman Memorial Dinner" and Zorka Wollny's choral piece "Dissent." Together with pianists Emily Manzo and David Friend, Clayton revisits two of late American composer Julius Eastman's seminal works for piano and reacts to them in real-time using a custom-built processing system. In "Dissent," Zorka Wollny explores the political act of voicing via a 23-piece choir, which she leads through articulations of hope, anger, and despair.
