On the Nature of Thingness – Nathan Davis (ICElab 2011 commission)
By International Contemporary Ensemble
ICE’s relationships with ICElab composers are bigger than a single commission. ICE seeks every opportunity to engage with the entire oeuvre of a composer before, during, and after its completion. In the case of Nathan Davis, ICE composer and percussionist, ICE has performed this and other works at Lincoln Center and other NYC venues, in Chicago, on tour in four US States, Darmstadt and Berlin, and on an all-Davis CD chosen by Time Out New York as one of The Best Classical Albums of 2011.
