WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Composer Nico Muhly discusses his music for countertenor with author and illustrator Maira Kalman and Guggenheim curator for performance and media Nat Trotman. A selection of these works, including The Principles of Uncertainty (2007), inspired by Kalman's book and blog of the same name, and Four Traditional Songs (2011) will be performed alongside a preview of a new Works & Process commission. Inspired by the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World's interpretation of the oldest song in the world, the new commission is an extension of Lenka Clayton and Jon Rubin's project ...circle through New York, part of the Guggenheim Social Practice initiative. Produced in association with Beth Morrison Projects.
