Nine Rivers - Part II: Iosis

This event has ended.

  Part II: Iosis
  Night two features the evening-length work La coupure, for percussion solo with live electronics and video projection, performed by Schick.


  A symphonic cycle of monumental proportions, James Dillon’s Nine Rivers is one of the most talked-about new works of the past few years. Written over several decades—and scored for a formidable assemblage of musicians and multimedia artists—the cycle covers a vast sonic terrain, from hushed a cappella singing to high-octane drumming.

  Miller opens the 2011-12 season with an ambitious, three-night staging of this important work, bringing together members of the original creative team with some of the best new music performers on both coasts.

  Co-produced with Works & Process at the Guggenheim
