New Music New College Opens 2015-16 Season with Kate Soper
Kate Soper is an “erudite, hilarious and furiously inventive” composer, says The New Yorker. She also is a dazzling singer with a “lithe voice and riveting presence,” says The New York Times.
Soper, a 2012 recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and professor of music at Smith College, is appearing with Wet Ink, a New York City-based new music ensemble (flute, violin, percussion).
They will perform Soper’s “Ipsa Dixit,” a theatrical-style work that uses texts by Lydia Davis, Wittgenstein, Freud, Plato, Aristotle, and others to explore the treachery of language and the frustrations and limits of communication.
