Arraymusic, The Music Gallery, and Native Women In The Arts present
Raven Chacon Mini-Festival
We are pleased to team up with Arraymusic once again together alongside Native Women In The Arts to present the Raven Chacon mini-festival featuring the world premiere of For Zitkála-Šá, dedicated to the first American Indian librettist.
Originally from the Navajo Nation, Raven Chacon, born in 1977, is a composer of chamber music, a performer of experimental noise music, and an installation artist. He performs regularly as a solo artist as well as with numerous ensembles in the Southwest and beyond, and was a long-time member of the Indigenous art collective Postcommodity. Chacon’s work explores sounds of acoustic handmade instruments overdriven through electric systems and the direct and indirect audio feedback responses from their interactions.
Raven Chacon – Olivia Shortt
This closing night features two noisy but highly textured solo sets. Raven’s solo sets are wide-ranging veering from dense and caustic sounds to more spacious and dynamic passages. Opening this concert is Anishinaabe-irish (Nipissing First Nation) saxophonist Olivia Shortt who has appeared in various configurations of the Music Gallery over the years, notably in the Stereoscope Duo and saxophone quartet Dialectica.
