EX-SITU: THE VIOLIN
JULY 9TH, 7PM AT FEDERAL HALL
“The players were swaddled, and sometimes engulfed, in a haunting chorus of recorded violins. The performance was eloquent, the music deeply moving.”
-The New York Times
The Violin is a suite of 7 pieces for multi-tracked violins and films – 45 minutes in total. The team is comprised of Anna Clyne, composer (Composer in residence with the Chicago Symphony); Josh Dorman, artist; Cornelius Dufallo, violin; Amy Kauffman, violin.
The event will include surround sound and four channel film designed to fill Federal Hall.
