Composer and jazz percussionist Susie Ibarra, a 2014 TED Fellow, presents the world premiere of her Talking Gong for flute, percussion and piano, joined by flutist Claire Chase, a MacArthur Genius Award winner, and New Paltz professor Alex Peh. The work is inspired by the gong chime culture of Southeast Asia and particularly the rhythms and language of the Philippine Maguindanaon talking gongs, the gandingan, which were originally used to speak language as well as play music.
