Fonema Consort delves into the expressive musical potential that lies in the convergence of painting and language in a program of works that take as their starting point the work of iconic Latin American artists and writers Clarice Lispector, Roberto Matta, and Chavela Vargas. This listening session explores the particular linguistic devices and manipulations used in two newly commissioned pieces by Fernanda Aoki Navarro and Pablo Santiago Chin, as well as a virtuosic tour de force by composer Richard Barrett. Navarro and Chin will draw connections between their approaches to language in composition and those used in various forms of poetry and prose, such as phonetic prominence in sound poetry. Cosponsored with the Experimental Sound Studio
