Nekyia: Music of the Underworld

Uploaded by Jon Forshee
Nekyia: Music of the Underworld
Inspired by the stories of Persephone, Odysseus, Orpheus and Aeneas, "Nekyia: Music of the Underworld" combines myth, Modern poetry, and the evocative music of the Nekyia Ensemble to create an unforgettable afternoon of descent and emergence and of transformation and renewal. For this 1 ½ hour concert at the Widow Jane Mine, readings by local Hudson Valley poets Dorota Czerner, Robert Kelly and Charles Stein intertwine with a curation of new musical works for guitar, for computer and for electric tuba performed by Colin McAllister and Jon Forshee of the University of Colorado Colorado Springs.
