Studies in Space: Nos. 2 & 3

PROGRAM NOTE:

 

Studies in Space Nos. 2 & 3 was written as part of a collaboration between Manhattan School of Music and The Hoch Schule für Musik Franz Liszt. It continues a series of pieces that originated with The Sakura Park Project, an installation that aimed to illuminate the role of the eponymous park in its New York City neighborhood. In the same vein, this work attempts to both make the collision of New York and Weimar unmissable and bring about an awareness of the concert hall the work is performed in. The text of the work is sourced from paragraphs the performers wrote about their relationship to their city.
