Ted Hearne - Sound from The Bench
February 3, 2023
The Bienen Contemporary/Early Vocal Ensemble, under the direction of Donald Nally, performs Ted Hearne's Sound from The Bench. Joining the ensemble is the original band from the work's 2014 premiere: guitarists Taylor Levine and James Moore, together with percussionist Ron Wiltrout.
A 2018 Pulitzer Prize finalist, Sound from The Bench is a reaction to Jena Osman's book Corporate Relations that follows the trajectory of corporate personhood in the United States, with texts from landmark supreme Court Cases and ventriloquism textbooks.
