Claire Chase presents the next performance in Density 2036, her twenty-three-year project to commission an entirely new body of repertory for solo flute each year until the 100th anniversary of Edgard Varèse’s groundbreaking 1936 flute solo, Density 21.5. For the seventh year of this project, Chase premieres a new work entitled Sex Magic by celebrated Australian composer Liza Lim, whose ongoing compositional concerns include the roots of beauty (in noise), time effects in the Anthropocene, and the sensoria of ecological connection. Organized by Matthew Lyons. 


Claire Chase: Density 2036, part vii is made possible with endowment support from Mary Flagler Cary Charitable Trust; annual grants from The Amphion Foundation, Inc., Howard Gilman Foundation, and The Fan Fox and Leslie R. Samuels Foundation; and in part by public funds from New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
