Waterlines: Five Songs about Storms and Floods — Christopher Trapani

with Talea Ensemble 
Roulette Intermedium, Brooklyn
September 11, 2018

"The 1927 Mississippi River flood, one of the most destructive natural disasters in American history, coincided with the heyday of commercial recording in the South — a last burst of enterprise before the great depression that fortuitously left us with several great records chronicling the disaster. In the months following Katrina, I began sifting through these old blues and country records for words and sounds that resonated, borrowing sonorities, couplets, and stylistic gestures and assembling them into a project with historical, musicological, and personal dimensions." —Christopher Trapani

 

Dithyramb — Jason Eckardt

May 2014
at Spectrum, in NYC

Dithyramb is an excerpt of a larger work, Tongues, which was inspired in part glossolalia, better known as "speaking in tongues": an ecstatic outburst of unintelligible vocal sounds that resembles spoken language. A Dithyramb is an ancient Greek hymn, sung in honor of Dionysus, the god of wine and pleasure. Performances were said to be riotously ecstatic.
