Carillon Presents: Felix del Tredici & The Whale's Lament

  • ArtShare LA 801 East 4th Place Los Angeles, CA, 90013 United States (map)

Whale’s Lament is a musical journey made by earthlings entranced by the song of a Humpback Whale. As the whale starts diving it descends through layers of radioactivity, garbage old and new, ghostly fishing nets, and oil spills -- all of it punctuated by underwater explosions -- to arrive at last in the realm of mermaids, lost cities, immortal fish, and pure, deep vibrations from our blue planet. For the dive sequence I have combined music by Alvin Lucier, Sandeep Bhagwati, Luciano Berio, Alexander Alyabyev, and Béla Bartók.

Joining Del Tredici will be tromboniste Matt Barbier, and trumpeters Nicolás Bejarano and Ethan Marks
