Described as “indefatigable and eclectic” (New York Times), the string quartet ETHEL return to National Sawdust with the fourth chapter of their HomeBaked Project, an initiative showcasing emerging composers.
ETHEL will perform world premiere works by the current round of commissioned HomeBaked composers — Sugar Vendil, Simon Brown, Sarah Goldfeather, and Nailah Nombeko — and by Marcelo Zarvos and Walter Smith, along with a piece from a previous round of HomeBaked by Harrison Ponce.
HomeBaked has been a resounding success for early career composers, who have gone on to win prestigious national and international prizes — this is an unmissable opportunity to hear their compositional voices take shape.
Beginning on July 24, 2020 and extending to August 29th at the Cultural Arts Center in Columbus, it combines Karin Dahl’s abstract art and Harrison Ponce’s contemporary music. Each painting has a sound track — music that extends its meaning. Half of the show starts with specific abstract paintings and has music written in interpretation. The other half is the reverse - the creative process begins with the composer’s music and meaning is interpreted in each painting. This process of translating meaning from one art form to another is called transmediation and is the core idea of the exhibit.
