birth, death

birth, death [excerpt] by Anne Leilehua Lanzilotti
Performed by TICF Young Artists
Thailand International Composition Festival 2018

This work was written in honor of the exhibition of Isamu Noguchi’s two sculptures Birth (1934) and Death (1934) being displayed together in the same gallery for the first time. The two obsidian sound sculptures used in birth, death—Untitled (1978) & Sounding Stone (1981)—were created by Noguchi to be played as instruments. This version engages the memory of the sculptures, using instead other pitched metal.

koʻu inoa by Lanzilotti live at The TANK

koʻu inoa is a piece that I like to refer to as “homesick bariolage” on a Hawaiian anthem. I wrote it specifically for The TANK Center for Sonic Arts which has about a 40 second reverb. This recording from the premiere has no effects, it is purely acoustic.
