George Lewis: The Mangle of Practice
Posted By Ensemble Dal Niente
This recording is a live performance by Ensemble Dal Niente artists MingHuan Xu, violin and Winston Choi, piano on October 30, 2014 at the Library of Congress. “The Mangle of Practice” is a Library of Congress commission, and this recording is of the work’s World Premiere. The piece is inspired by an essay of the same name by sociologist Andrew Pickering, and explores the “push-pull” dynamic between humanity and materialism. This work will receive its first commercial recording as part of the proposed recording project.
