As Water, Freedom

February 6, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

As Water, Freedom is an exploration of the layers of intersecting identities that we have as individuals and collective
groups, and how these fluid identities shift and develop. Musical influences in the piece include traditional West African
music, Indian classical music, Dastgah Mahur from Persian classical music, Eastern European folk music, and American
vernacular music. As Water, Freedom is meant to illustrate sonically how we might be able to celebrate differences while
still finding common ground in our identities, both individual and collective (solo and ensemble). The piece also
sonically explores how these identities can affect change in one another. As Water, Freedom has an interactive component
of audience participation. Audience members will use their bodies and voices to simulate the sound of rain at specific
points in the piece, cued by the conductor.
