Bubbles (2014)

By Niloufar Talebi

I'm sorry, this media seems to be unavailable.

Commissioned by Brooklyn Academy of Music and Brooklyn Youth Chorus to mark the 80th anniversary of the Black Mountain College in 2014, as a part of Black Mountain Songs.

Both Robert Creeley and John Cage, whose texts I set for chorus and small ensemble, taught at Black Mountain College. I was inspired by the collaborative spirit and cross genre experiments that were typical for the community of artists teaching/creating there. The piece is my homage to this visionary institution that nurtured creativity, togetherness, and free spirit. –AV
