Sounds Modern will present Framing Desire in Music: a concert of recent works in which composers express their longing, sentimental and magical, for an unattainable and distant reality. The program will include works that celebrate particular people and places – and especially, beloved pieces of music that composers refer to (even incorporate), reframing them much as photographs and video reframe and reinforce elements of the visual world. These musical acts of sympathetic magic will provide a sonic dimension to the Modern’s exhibit Framing Desire.
