Award-winning composer Amy Denio presents her newly expanded chamber suite Truth Is Up For Grabs for 21 instruments with projected video by James Drage.
Denio’s rich and lively musical suite is inspired by current events, the political economy of war, and by poems written by Pablo Neruda. Video artist James Drage has created beautiful moving images for each section. The instrumentation includes strings, brass, woodwinds, and two percussionists – from Kurdistan and Mexico. The ensemble will be conducted by Mike Jauregui.
This performance is sponsored by the Seattle Composers Alliance, and made possible in part by funding from The Office of Arts and Culture and from 4Culture.
