A new song cycle, the echoing of tenses, commissioned by the Ojai Festival from Anthony Cheung, sets poetry by Asian-American writers interconnected by the larger theme of memory, made complicated by the circumstances and tensions of cultural and personal identity, family, migration, loss, and reflection. The various poems by Arthur Sze, Monica Youn, Jenny Xie, Ocean Vuong, and others, will be sung, spoken, and interwoven throughout. The work features Paul Appleby, Miranda Cuckson, and Anthony Cheung, and a score that mixes live performance with pre-recorded sound design, in collaboration with David Bird.
