My first UC San Diego recital, "Apparition," showcases highly contrasting pieces that yet revolve around themes of internal and external presence. First, S Whiteley’s sonically and visually intriguing new work “INTRA” blends cello, live electronics, interactive lights, and choreography, exploring the entangled unconscious of performer/instrument, folly, presence, and absence of the human body from the stage. Next, Luigi Dallapiccola, in his « Ciaccona, Intermezzo e Adagio ,» uses a colorful array of expressive markings serving to fully conceal and illuminate fragments of 12-tone collections. To follow, Liza Lim's "Invisibility" explores the "aesthetics of presence" in which "shimmering effects both reveal and hide the presence of the numinous." Finally, Chinary Ung's "Grand Alap: A Window in the Sky" brings the numinous to the forefront, communicating to the surrounding spirits and symbolizing a rebirth of the soul.
