ABOUT THIS EVENT
Gay African-American composer Julius Eastman perfected his multifarious minimalism in three works of the late seventies: "Crazy N*r", "Evil N*r", and "Gay Guerrilla". Each work is scored for multiple instruments of the same kind. This concert features two of the works performed as a piano quartet and Gay Guerrilla performed by a large ensemble of electric guitars.
