The New York Public Library continues its collaboration with ICE this season in the interest of building an archive of burgeoning American composers' work. For this event, ICE performs music by Ashley Fure, one of the ensemble's closest composer collaborators.
The program features an interactive presentation of two works by the composer:
Therefore, I Was for cello, piano, and percussion
Shiver Lung 2 for solo percussion and electronics
Ross Karre, percussion
Levy Lorenzo, electronics
Michael Nicolas, cello
Cory Smythe, piano
