Women in Parallel Empires (2021) – World Premiere
Flutists Jane Rigler and Tessa Brinckman present the world premiere of their 22-minute acousmatic video, a “space opera,” in posthumous collaboration with Cécile Chaminade’s Sérénade aux étoiles (Serenade to the stars, 1911). Women in Parallel Empires explores how we might reclaim flute compositions by women composers dismissed from the Western canon, by re-assembling them within contemporary contexts, and addressing (and/or subverting) the concept of Empire, genius, and extraction in Western “art” music. A short pre-concert discussion, between Jane and Tessa about their collaboration, starts at 4:00 PM (Pacific time).
