Preview of the new song cycle “El Colapso” by composer & multi-instrumentalist Angélica Negrón. A collection of ambient influenced songs about escapism, delusion, longing and mortality written for voice, electronics, custom made instruments and Latin American folk instruments. This evening will mark the premiere performance of this collection of songs as a whole and will feature performances by the composer accompanied by Bayoán Ríos on Andean instruments, Shayna Dunkelman on xylosynth and percussion, robotic instruments designed by Nick Yulman, and other surprise collaborators.
American Composers Orchestra’s Composers OutFront! puts composers onstage, bringing audiences closer to the creative process. Angélica Negrón is ACO’s Van Lier Emerging Composer Fellow and this event represents the culmination of Negrón’s fellowship.
