On Wednesday April 11th Liminar returns to join forces with the outstanding Friends of MATA (FOM) ensemble and vocalists Carmina Escobar, Jeffrey Gavett and Steven Hrycelak in an ecstatic clamorous celebration of sound. Bodies resonate into each other, divas reflect on fame, and fissures come together. The program will include works by Kristin Boussard (Sweden), Sky Macklay (USA), Valentin Pelisch (Argentina), Alessandro Perini (Italy), and Michael Winter (USA), and the premiere performance of a newly commissioned work from MATA alumnus David T. Little (MATA 2008).
