WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Join Metropolis Ensemble cellist Ashley Bathgate in collaboration with the Brooklyn-based composer collective Sleeping Giant (Timo Andres, Chris Cerrone, Jacob Cooper, Ted Hearne, Robert Honstein, and Andrew Norman) as she premieres an entirely new series of reflections inspired by the Unaccompanied Cello Suites of J.S. Bach
Bach Unwound will incorporate extended performance techniques, live electronics, and external media resulting in a radical deconstruction and re-imagination of the original music. Collectively forming a single, concert-length work, this multi-composer collaboration will juxtapose contemporary and historical practice to create a new recital experience.
