Are you sitting in a room? Well then, my friend, you and Alvin Lucier have something in common! This veteran avant-garde composer's investigations into the nature of sound and resonance have changed the way musicians of succeeding generations hear and listen—take for example his seminal piece "I am sittting in a room," which slowly replays and re-records audio of Lucier narrating a text, until the resonant frequencies of the specific performance environment overtake the speech entirely. Here he premieres his Orpheus Variations, a new composition featuring solo cellist Charles Curtis, seven wind instruments and seven dancers, with choreography by Abigail Levine.
