Brilliant Alarm @ Transform Festival, YBCA Aug 23rd 2017

Screen Shot 2017-09-20 at 5.01.24 PM

I have composed a 30 min long new soundtrack for Brilliant AlarmRAWdance‘s new commission for Transform Festival  at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. More info below:

Transform Fest 2017 features nine prolific Bay Area dance companies and art makers responding to the question “Why Citizenship?”. These commissioned works are designed to activate an immersive installation by sculptor and architect Giacomo Castagnola.

For its own new work, RAWdance will look at the recurring history of clashes between power structures and society’s intellectuals and culture makers: from the destruction of the library of Alexandria to China’s Cultural Revolution, the Khmer Rouge to the Spanish Civil War. Critical thinking has regularly and quite often violently been considered a threat, risky to those in power or those trying to usurp it. What does it mean to be an informed citizen?

Performances:

Friday 15th 2017, 8 pm

Saturday 23rd 2017, 8 pm.
