Bana Haffar and Third Coast Percussion
Grammy-winning Chicago-based percussion ensemble Third Coast Percussion and composer Bana Haffar debut the newly commissioned Shed for percussion and modular synthesizer. Drawing from the rich legacy of Anni Albers, Haffar engages with the materiality of sound, the essence of cloth, and the symbiosis of the machine and handmade by transposing standard weaving draft notation into musical scores. The concert will also include works by Guggenheim Fellow Augusta Read Thomas, Robert Dillon, and Mark Applebaum.
