"I’m not dismissive of classical music and the Western canon. . .it’s simply that I can’t be bound by it. I’ve been jumping out of categories all my life." – Pauline Oliveros, The New York Times
"IONE’s vocals are like a bright star around which all other sounds orbit." – Pitchfork
International Contemporary Ensemble is "the new gold standard for new music." – The New Yorker
After Pauline Oliveros’ death in November 2016, the experimental American composer’s unfinished, collaborative intermedia opera continued to be a source of inspiration, imagination, and retrospection. Excerpts from The Nubian Word for Flowers, performed by International Contemporary Ensemble under the direction of writer and sound artist IONE, offer an intimate glimpse into the hybrid process of posthumous creation, and invite discussion around topics of creation and remembrance.
BAC Salon is a series of concerts performed in an intimate salon setting.
Leadership support for music programming in 2017 provided by the Anne and Chris Flowers Foundation and the Thompson Family Foundation.
