Announcing a new commissioning opportunity for flute & percussion!
Announcing a new commissioning opportunity!
Caballito Negro and composer Alex Shapiro are excited to embark on the creation of a multimedia electroacoustic suite.
The emotional theme of the music will explore communication between people, and within the forests, whose unseen connections have piqued readers’ interest through provocative books such as Peter Wohlleben’s, “The Hidden Life of Trees,” and Tompkins’ and Bird’s, “The Secret Life of Plants.” Each movement will be paired with Shapiro’s photographs and videos of the natural world which surrounds and inspires her at home on Washington State’s remote San Juan Island.
If you would like to join our co-commission, please connect with us before September 2018, and we’ll send you the details.
