Oct 22– Video Release
On October 22nd, we release a brand new work by Julie Zhu. Zhu's intermedia piece, Distraction, is a quartet of internal conversations. Tempo and meter are determined by inhales, exhales, and the absence of breath, while the performer navigates a video score of musical cells, sometimes in their own world, sometimes listening closely to others, coming into consonance or choosing dissonance. Due to unfortunate circumstances, we need to postpone Dennis and Molly's premieres until November. Thank you for your understanding.
Nov 22nd, 7:30PM– Dialogues//Juxtaposition
Unheard-of will be working remotely with the Florida State University, University of Florida, and University of Central Florida composition studios in performances, workshops, and master classes. We will be using our recording and multimedia setup to stream new works from our recent multimedia call for proposals including pieces by Doug Bielmeier, Cassie Wieland, and Austin Yip as well as Liliya Ugay's After the End of Time, James Diaz's Track Four, a new work by Molly Joyce, and more. We will also record premieres written for us from composers at FSU and University of Florida.
The Dialogues series is made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and administered by LMCC.

If unable to travel safely, we will present a series of virtual workshops with students as well as three concerts bringing together some of our favorite works.
