Claire Chase continues her 22-year project, density 2036, to commission an entirely new body of repertory for solo flute each year between 2014 and 2036, the 100th Anniversary of Edgard Varèse’s groundbreaking flute solo, Density 21.5. For the third year of her ambitious project, Chase not only commissions and premieres part iii with new works by Nathan Davis, Jason Eckardt, Dai Fujikura, Pauline Oliveros, and Francesca Verunelli, but also performs this alongside density parts i and ii, to give the full scope of the material to date. With design by David Michalek and Levy Lorenzo, these performances are immersive, virtuosic, and groundbreaking.
