ROOM: Chamber Chorus! Featuring: Voices of Silicon Valley
The ROOM Series presents an evening of choral works with the contemporary chamber chorus Voices of Silicon Valley (under the direction of Cyril Deaconoff) including work-in-progress excerpts from Pamela Z's "Correspondence".
"Correspondence" is an exploration of the ever-evolving modes of personal communication and how the rapid changes are impacting or coloring the ways we relate to one another. The work teases apart the history of correspondence from handwritten letters and telegraphs to electronic messaging, tweets, and video chats. Z composed the piece by interviewing people about their histories with various modes of correspondence, and using speech fragments from those interviews to weave together the structure and to derive melodic and rhythmic material for the parts.
The program will also include a suite of re-imagined Renaissance madrigals, and film scores.
