Sun Dogs: Filmmaker and Composer Pairings With Alarm Will Sound Presented by Northrop and Liquid Music

November 21 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Featuring Alarm Will Sound; composers Devonté Hynes, Arooj Aftab, Daniel Wohl, and Rafiq Bhatia; and filmmakers Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Josephine Decker, Mati Diop, and Manon Lutanie

An ongoing Liquid Music series, Sun Dogs brings together inspired composer and filmmaker pairs to create short-format films with new music for live orchestra, exploring how stories can be told (both musically and visually) from equal footing. These singular films are accompanied by the “unusually versatile, reliably exhilarating new-music ensemble” (The New York Times) Alarm Will Sound, with newly-arranged scores for the group. An atmospheric phenomenon created by refracted light, a sun dog is striking proof that, when natural conditions are right, familiar elements can shift the way we see the world. The series’ prismatic collaborations similarly allow us glimpses at another realm.

Program:
Northrop-commissioned prelude for organ, electronics, and sampled vocals by Daniel Wohl
On Blue by composer Rafiq Bhatia and filmmaker Apichatpong Weerasethakul
Naked Blue by composer Devonté Hynes and filmmakers Mati Diop and Manon Lutanie
Rise, Again by co-composers Daniel Wohl and Arooj Aftab and filmmaker Josephine Decker
