Poetry & Music: Always Already with Ben Vida


Experience the world premiere of Always Already, a composition for voice, fixed electronics, keyboards, and vibraphones by Ben Vida; Vida is joined by soprano Nina Dante and the ensemble Yarn/Wire. Vida’s hypnotic work examines the materiality of language through repetition and variation, inspired by the text-sourcing methods of the conceptual writing movement and the rhythmical essays of Gertrude Stein. Dante has worked with Vida on several projects and is the cofounder of Fonema Consort. Yarn/ Wire is a celebrated percussion and piano quartet that includes Ian Antonio, Russell Greenberg, Laura Barger, and Ning Yu.

Cosponsored with Lampo, which received support for this program from the Alice M. Ditson Fund of Columbia University
