The Earle Brown Music Foundation (EBMF) is pleased to announce that while there will be no public performances of TIME:SPANS 2020, select video and audio recordings will be available starting on Mon, August 10. Performances originally scheduled for August 9-20 at the DiMenna Center for Classical Music in New York City regrettably had to be canceled or postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead we invite you to view the commissioned videos below. A concert with Talea Ensemble will be presented on January 15, 2021, at DiMenna Center.
The first set of videos produced for TIME:SPANS 2020 has been created and can now be viewed online. These four videos were recorded on different continents under COVID-19 travel restrictions. Thanksong was created simultaneously in Montreal and London. Heave was filmed in London and Tel Aviv. In addition to those, TIME:SPANS 2020 will produce videos in the coming weeks and months with Sõ Percussion, JACK quartet, ICE Ensemble and Yarn/Wire in New York City, as well as a recording of Tyshawn Sorey’s For George Lewis with Alarm Will Sound.
