Local composer, Chris Kincaid will be on Keep Louisville Literary on Thursday (1pm EST) to discuss art song along with his upcoming premier of ‘Full Sunlight.’ Local new music collective, Mothership Ensemble will be premiering the work on March 15 at IU Southeast in New Albany, IN.
‘This concert will feature the world premiere of Chris Kincaid’s Full Sunlight, written for bass flute, viola, cello, and electronic sounds. The work is inspired by the poem “Full Sunlight
written by Louisville-born poet Conyer Clayton, and explores music that, according to Kincaid, “is not exactly frozen in time, but instead takes place in time that slowed almost to a standstill.”
Art song is much different in process than song writing and works very well for contemporary poetry. Kincaid has worked with other local poets in the community and plans to continue to do so in the future. Listen Thursday as we discuss this process, read the poems, and play recordings of previously finished works by Kincaid that turn poems into chamber music.
