Works & Process at the Guggenheim and Miller Theatre at Columbia University present the U.S. Premiere of James Dillon's Nine Rivers. Written over several decades and scored for 50 musicians and multimedia artists, the work covers a vast sonic terrain, from hushed a cappella singing to high-octane drumming. Members of the creative team behind the work's acclaimed world premiere—percussionist Steven Schick and video designer Ross Karre—join with young American musicians from the International Contemporary Ensemble, chamber choir The Crossing, and percussion group red fish blue fish. Melissa Smey moderates a discussion with James Dillon, Steven Shick, Ross Karre, and Clare Chase.
