San Diego New Music presents a program curated by Charissa Noble

Whether through symbolism, electronic collage, or multimedia performance, innovative artists offer new perspectives on what narrative is and how music can immerse us in it. Though modernism often steered clear of using music as a plot device, musical mavericks of the 20th and 21st century have explored diverse, novel approaches to "narrative" in music. Featuring recently revived works by WPA-era composer Johanna Beyer as well as new music by emergent local composers Francisco Eme and Kristopher and Dina Apple, this concert traces the journey of "narrative" in modern music through a vibrant assemblage of evocative pieces.
