Musiqa Presents "Compilation" says
Musiqa presents a special concert in collaboration with the exhibition "Jennie C. Jones: Compilation" in the Brown Foundation Gallery.

The concert's program features works by five leading female composers. The best known of these is Grawemeyer award winner Kaija Saariaho, whose "Lohn," a work for soprano and electronics, will be performed by Musiqa's artist in residence Karol Bennett, along with sound designer Chapman Welch. Two other works also feature electronics: Eve Beglarian's "I Will Not Be Sad in This World," with flutist Sergio Pallottelli; and Alexandra Gardner's "Electric Blue Pantsuit," featuring violinist Boson Mo. Pallotelli will also perform Valerie Coleman's "Danza de la Mariposa" for solo flute, and the program will be rounded out with electronic works by Jennie C. Jones herself. The composers featured on this program feature a wide variety of styles: from electronics pioneer Saariaho, to the postminimalism of Beglarian; from Gardner's self-described "minimal, unexpectedly simple, and surprisingly powerful" music to Coleman's idiomatic writing for flute (unsurprising, as the composer is a flutist herself and a founding member of the Imani Winds).
