Widening the Embrace: A Reduced Carbon Footprint Concert (San Diego - Seoul, 2023)

Widening the Embrace is the third stage in our collaboration, which began in 2016 with Changing Tides I and was followed at the beginning of the pandemic in February 2020 with Changing Tides 2: Requiem for the Earth. Our intention is to forge 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. In collaboration with a team of visual designers and technologists, an ensemble of ten Korean and American improvisers split across our two sites will premiere new musical compositions that manifest our shared artistic affinities, in this latest collaborative effort to project our highest sonic aspirations.
