Following more than a dozen years of live musical performance across geographical distance, Widening the Embrace continues a path forward, balancing in sound as we collectively confront a morphing pandemic and undeniable climate crisis. In scientific and political fields today, the challenges facing humanity demand unprecedented levels of global, intercultural cooperation. As artists, we aspire to work in a similar spirit, drawing on the light-speed web of fiber optic nerves spread across our planet to create a trans-locational stage and activate it with new intercultural musical expressions. Directed by Mark Dresser and Michael Dessen, the concert features acclaimed musicians Ingrid Laubrock, Fay Victor and Patricia Brennan in New York City performing together with Dresser, Dessen, Joshua White, and Gerald Cleaver in California, with audiences at both locations. In collaboration with a team of visual designers and technologists, each concert features an ensemble of improvisers split across our two sites and premieres new musical compositions that manifest our shared artistic affinities, in this latest collaborative effort to project our highest sonic aspirations.
