Guerrilla Sounds: Julius Eastman's Legacy

San Francisco Contemporary Music Players

In SFCMP's at the Crossroads Series, they celebrate the work of legacy composers alongside cutting-edge voices from across generations: By meeting at these generational crossroads SFCMP reveals how the latest works are grounded in timeless questions. Inspired by Julius Eastman's politically powerful and sonically persuasive works Stay on It and Gay Guerilla, SFCMP launches into its cross-generational "at the Crossroads Series" with two major commissions.

This is what SF/Arts curator Jesse Hamlin has to say about Guerrilla Sounds: Julius Eastman's Legacy :

The Players’ launches its multigenerational “at the CROSSROADS” series with a nod to the late Julius Eastman, a provocative post-minimalist whose 1979 Gay Guerrilla for two pianos shares the May 11 bill with new Eastman-inspired works by Adam Strawbridge and Wyatt Cannon, and the premiere of pianist Myra Melford’s commissioned Homogenous Infiltration.
