The works on our program represent a wide variety of LGBTQ voices. alejandro acierto’s work develops in real time from responses to a set of prerecorded viola samples activated from the frequency of #LGBTQ on Twitter. Alex Temple’s Microphages is a set of 10-second miniature piano pieces. Quiet down, a new work by Andrew McManus, draws on a recording of activist Silvia Rivera’s iconic speech at a New York rally in 1973. Clay Mettens’ Passacaglia is a set of colorful variations on saxophone multiphonics and hollow, muted piano sounds and their resonance. The program also features works by LJ White and Randall West.
