BAC Salon: Pauline Oliveros
Featuring IONE + International Contemporary Ensemble in an Evening of Music + Conversation
Nov 28, 2017
“I’m not dismissive of classical music and the Western canon...it’s simply that I can’t be bound by it. I’ve been jumping out of categories all my life.”
– Pauline Oliveros, The New York Times
"IONE’s vocals are like a bright star around which all other sounds orbit.”
After Pauline Oliveros’ death in November 2016, the experimental American composer’s unfinished, collaborative intermedia opera continued to be a source of inspiration, imagination, and retrospection. Excerpts from The Nubian Word for Flowers, performed by International Contemporary Ensemble under the direction of writer and sound artist IONE, offer a glimpse into the hybrid process of posthumous creation, and invite discussion around topics of creation and remembrance.
BAC Salon is a series of concerts performed in an intimate salon setting.
Leadership support for music programming in 2017 provided by the Anne and Chris Flowers Foundation and the Thompson Family Foundation.
