Kronos is excited to be performing the world premiere of Nicole Lizée’s Black MIDI with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra (TSO) (Fifty for the Future Commissioning Partner) next Saturday, March 11 as part of the TSO’s New Creations Festival. A Fifty for the Future composer and frequent collaborator, Lizée has written a new piece for string quartet and orchestra that explores what Black MIDI could be. The piece tells a story of “how what begins as artificially imposed MIDI commands can then spur the imagination and cross into the analog or human world.”
