Wednesdays@7 presents
David Borgo - Suite of Uncommon Sorrows

Wednesday, October 6 at 7:00 p.m.

Streaming live from the Conrad Prebys Music Center Experimental Theater

Watch at music.ucsd.edu/live

 

The Suite of Uncommon Sorrows is an eleven-part suite of original music composed in response to the tumultuous events of 2020, including the devastating COVID-19 pandemic, the growing Black Lives Matter movement, and the debilitating polarization of U.S. politics that made it impossible to address either of these adequately.

Each movement explores a different “uncommon sorrow,” such as kuebiko (a state of moral exhaustion inspired by acts of horror in the news, which forces you to revise your image of what can happen in this world), kenopsia (the eerie, forlorn atmosphere of a place that’s usually bustling with people but is now abandoned and quiet), chrysalism (an amniotic-like tranquility while a storm rages outside), zenosyne (the sense that time keeps going faster), and pâro (the feeling that no matter what you do it will always be inadequate).

 

PERFORMERS:

  • David Borgo - tenor and soprano saxophones, aerophone
  • Tobin Chodos - piano and keyboard
  • Mackenzie Leighton - acoustic and electric bass
  • Mark Ferber - drum set
  • with special guest:
  • Peter Sprague - electric guitar

 

PROGRAM:

Kuebiko

  • a state of moral exhaustion inspired by acts of horror in the news, which forces you to revise your image of what can happen in this world

Chrysalism

  • an amniotic-like tranquility, similar to how one feels while wrapped in a blanket sitting inside on the couch while a storm rages outside.

Kenopsia

  • the eerie, forlorn atmosphere of a place that’s usually bustling with people but is now abandoned and quiet

Paro

  • the feeling that no matter what you do it will always be inadequate

The Village Covidiots

  • an inversion of Eric Dolphy’s “Out To Lunch,” dedicated to you know who.

Occhiolism

  • the awareness of the limitations of your own perspective

One Step Forward Two Steps Back

  • the feeling that although progress is being made, it produces a reaction that is somehow greater than equal and opposite

Zenosyne 

  • the sense that time keeps going faster

Gugulethu

  • a township outside of Cape Town, South Africa, its name is a contraction of igugu lethu, which is Xhosa for “our pride” (for Winston Mankunku Ngozi)
