“Fractured” NY Premiere by Unheard-of Ensemble

August 12, 2023 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM EDT

Black Mayo – August 12, 2023

Unheard-of premieres ensemble leader Ford Fourqurean’s new work exploring the Gowanus Canal’s depths. Using a 360 camera and footage captured along the canal, Ford crafts a video based on the unique flora and fauna making the feral parts of the Gowanus home along the water from the “black mayonnaise” to the canal surface. This concert will also feature a premiere by New York-based composer Vicki Leona. Ginger-Flavored Bubblegum honors and recognizes the underlying feelings of rage and loss I feel as an asian woman in the United States – especially with the rise of asian hate crimes in New York City – through the use of poetry from Theresa Cha’s “Dictee”. Other works on the program include the New York premiere of Asuka Kakitani’s Fractured as well as an Unheard-of staple, Doug Bielmeier and Allison Tanenhaus’s Corporate Responsibility Pledge, commenting on the dissonance between corporate promises and the realities of lobbying.
