Join us on a Saturday afternoon for a live event in the unique setting of Governors Island where composers Sha and Stuart Bogie will perform solo sets and present their brand new bassclarinet duo. Residency Unlimited (RU) is currently hosting Sha’s residency in New York.
"While the very idea of a solo performance might evoke images of an internal monologue, these musicians reach outwards and their work is about the hidden space around us, as defined by the sounds we make. Echolocation for emotion, if you will!" -Tobias Lambrecht
