Fonema Consort: 'Earth, Sky'

Embracing the operatic spirit of Sciarrino’s La perfezione di un spirito sottile, we are pleased to present Fonema Consort in an outdoor musical experience within the private atmosphere of the the garden. In this program, the ecstatic crescendo of James Tenney's Having Never Written a Note for Percussion* for solo tam-tam functions as an overture to the spellbinding atmosphere of Sciarrino's quasi opera. This program sound-paints the colors of the sky at sunset with an extensive but focused immersion in the sound properties of the instrumental medium.
