December, 14th, 8pm – Saint Mary’s Harlem (521 W. 126th St., New York, NY 10027)
TAK premieres new works by Brandon Lopez and Bethany Younge as part of their 2019-2020 commissioning project.
Lopez’s epic fifty-minute Empty Church of Plenty, featuring Lopez on bass, plays with improvisation, processes, group physicality, and dissent.
Younge’s at midnight I walked into the middle of the desert deals in physical precognition and unworldly memory through fantastical textures and texts written in collaboration with the composer and ensemble.
Empty and/or Church of Plenty (50′) – Brandon Lopez; featuring Brandon Lopez, bass soloist
at midnight i walked into the middle of the desert (15′) – Bethany Younge
