about

Empty And/Or Church of Plenty was a commission by TAK ensemble for Brandon Lopez. The score was part in text and part through conversation; the directions given by Lopez foreground the intuitive and concrete technical aspects of the performance. The idea was to create a complex sound-world through collaboration and seemingly simple means. The action of performing the work is a democratic and collaborative process, and each individual plays a part in the work’s creation. The democratization of this process is an important means of opposing European hierarchies in thought—aural transmission versus written scores works as a means of decolonization of the process of composition... each player in the ensemble made part-composer. The resultant sound-world is simultaneously iridescent and murky, ecstatic and foreboding.
