This intimate concert will feature two expansive American works for small forces. John Cage’s 1980 duo Litany for the Whale will be paired with the premiere of the full version of Timothy McCormack’s panic around death, for solo vocalist performing on various objects, with electronics. While Cage’s work is focused around five simple pitches, and McCormack’s creates a complex nest of noise that envelops the audience, both works conjure a rich and immersive atmosphere.
