One event on March 23, 2019 at 8:00pm
World Premieres by Ben Frost and Angélica Negrón
“Gloriously clear voices … exquisitely wrought.” —Feast of Music
Experts in both contemporary and early music, ModernMedieval interweaves in The Living Word ecstatic chants of 12th-century mystic Hildegard of Bingen with newly commissioned electronic and vocal music by Australian/Icelandic composer/producer Ben Frost and Puerto Rico–born composer Angélica Negrón, who perform their new works live with the ensemble. Electronic/pop singer/composer Julianna Barwick, who was featured in the Walker’s 2012 Sound Horizon series, also joins ModernMedieval for her new extended work Adder.
Co-commissioned and copresented by the SPCO’s Liquid Music Series and presented in association with Summit Center for Arts and Innovation
