The event focuses on the premiere of The Cattle Raid of Cooley or The Show, a double-narrative singerless opera created by ensemble co-founder Matthew Shlomowitz with digital artist Scott Wilson and writer Allison Carruth. The program features further music-image collaborations including renowned digital artist Justine Cooper and Barton Staggs and the first audio-visual rendering of Morton Feldman's Instruments 1 with visual artist James McGrath.
