Nasher Sculpture Center says
"In all of our memories no one had been so outspoken in poetry before—we had gone beyond a point of no return—and we were ready for it, for a point of no return...We wanted voice and we wanted vision…."

—Michael McClure recounting Allen Ginsberg’s first reading of Howl in 1955

At once a painfully intimate poetic cry and anthem to the Beat Generation, Soundings presents Allen Ginsberg’s Howl in Lee Hyla’s setting for string quartet and narrator with baritone William Sharp and the Brentano String Quartet. In the program’s companion work, Travis Laplante’s Palace of Wind, Battle Trance (the tenor saxophone quartet created specifically for Palace of Wind) brings us a work that defies genre, existing in the cracks between contemporary classical, avant-garde jazz, black metal, ambient, and world music.
