The Refuse Project
Firesong will present the debut performance of ‘The Refuse Project’ on Saturday May 13, 2017 at the Center for New Music. The Refuse Project pairs the world premiere of a new monodrama ‘Refuse Collection’ (2016/17) by Bay Area composer David Coll with ‘Position Influence’ (2010) for soprano and sound sculpture and “Apparition: Elegiac Songs and Vocalises for Soprano and Amplified Piano” (1979) by Pulitzer Prize winning composer George Crumb. Crumb and Coll cohere new modes of extended vocal and piano techniques with the poetry of Walt Whitman (“When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom’d”) and Jeremy Prynne (“Refuse Collection”).
