Description

We all had our pandemic rituals, actions to make us feel connected during isolation, whether is Zoom calls or games with friends online. Waving to the neighbors at seven, cheering for healthcare workers, went on for weeks in New York. It gave me hope that we would persist, and I wanted to celebrate that through this piece! Neighbors at Seven was written for C4’s live remote performance project, featuring aleatoric lines to account for latency and solos to emphasize the text.
