November 14, 2021, 4 PM EST
Location: Michael C. Carlos, Ackerman Hall
In this recital/lecture, violinist and Emory Visiting Professor of Music Heidi Senungetuk (Kingikmiut Inupiaq), will present two works that highlight Indigenous modes of creativity in music. The first of these two, For Heidi Senungetuk, was composed by Raven Chacon (Navajo Nation) as part of his series For Zitkála Šá. The second piece on the program, “Qutaaŋuaqtuit: Dripping Music,” created for the ongoing art exhibition Soundings: An Exhibition in Five Parts, which brings attention to concepts of musical score interpretation, Indigenous language revitalization, interpretation of ancestral material arts, and musical performances as acts of sovereignty.
