What does home sound like? Improvising Home is a multi-movement musical composition for Native American flute and large ensemble that utilizes creative improvised music to explore questions relating to identity and acoustic ecology in the San Francisco Bay Area. The work is grounded in urban American Indian lived experiences and cultural productions brought into dialogue with the intercultural musical lives of the Intertribal Ensemble members. Utilizing improvisation as a framework, an ensemble performance is not simply the presentation of an aesthetic object but a unique realtime discussion conducted in the moment through sound. FMI:
