Borealis 2021: Raven Chacon composes for BIT20 Ensemble
We’re incredibly happy to announce that Raven Chacon is composing new work for BIT20 Ensemble to be premiered at Borealis 2021 in March!
Using voice, field recordings and moving image, this new commission sees Chacon combining his solo career in noise and electronic music with his extensive experience in composing chamber music – a combination he rarely employs.
Chacon is a composer, performer and installation artist from Fort Defiance, Navajo Nation residing in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He’s the recipient of several fellowships and awards for his outstanding work in composition. As a solo artist, collaborator, or with Postcommodity, Chacon has exhibited or performed at Whitney Biennial and documenta 14 amongst others.
We can’t wait to present his music as part of Borealis 2021 and to work with the versatile musicians of the BIT20 Ensemble!
