Rubiks Collective: Kaoutzani & Chance
Fri 25 August @ 19:00 - 20:00$30 – $37
Five Love Songs by Greek composer Maria Kaoutzani was written for Rubiks as part of a larger suite from American based composer collective, Kinds of Kings. While its title suggests simplicity of format and concept, the work interrogates Kaoutzani’s personal experiences of love and belonging regarding intimate relationships and nationalistic identity.
Following is a work that has been described as a ‘mother-daughter motet’. Heirloom by Australian composer Alice Chance includes the recorded voices of three generations of women from the same family line and explores generative musical processes in both vocal and instrumental lines. With the ensemble’s underscoring, the recorded voices speak to complex layers of history, the strength of family ties, and the fragility of intergenerational memories.
