TRIO OF THE TROUBLED EARTH

Wednesday, January 22, 2020 @ Marc Scorca Hall, National Opera Ctr., 7th floor, 330 7th Ave., NYC 10001, 7:30 p.m.

TRIO OF THE TROUBLED EARTH trends on the "hot" topic of climate change (PI).   The form of TTE intends as compositional critical theory:  on a purely semiotic basis, it embodies our internet culture which revels in fractured, socially-constructivist 'knowledge' that is really just a bunch of informational bits which cannot be verified, and therefore do not evolve into a cohesive disciplinary whole. TTE's modified rondo form attempts to dialogue with the past via:  Monty Python-esque dark humour, mockery, parody and outright nihilism.  Influenced by the philosophies and critical writings of:  Martin Heidegger, Walter Benjamin, Theodore Adorno and Bernard Stiegler.  TTE was first performed at a reading at The Juilliard School in 2016.  This performance of TTE is dedicated to the animal and human victims of the recent Australian wildfires.  MORE INFORMATION:  http://newyorkcomposerscircle.org/In-the-Loop/Entries/2019/12/january-22-concert-flyer.html
