Conservatory Composition Faculty Chen Yi Wins Award from New Music USA
The commission is for an original music composition written for the Prism Saxophone Quartet. When Metal Meets Wood is a collaboration between Chen Yi, Nai-Ni Chen, and the Prism Saxophone Quartet. It explores the energy between dancers, making movement phrases that enhance or reduce the experience of the audience visually and aurally, creating a dynamic, integrated presentation of the composition on stage. The piece premieres December 2013 at the Salvatore Capezio Theatre at the Peridance Center, NYC.
