We continue a short video series leading up to the American Composers Orchestra concert on April 5 in Zankel Hall with part one of two that features composer Judith Sainte Croix, whose Vision V receives its world premiere that night.
Here, Sainte Croix travels to Bear Mountain, New York, where she reveals how inspiration comes to her from nature, before returning to work on the piece at ACO's coLABoratory Workshop. In this video, she explains how the world-view of indigenous peoples meeting modern scientific explanations informs her music.
Judith Sainte Croix discusses her Vision V—Part 1: Gathering Material.
