“City of Industry” explores the fusion of industry, found sound, and music in featured composer Annie Gosfield’s work. Presented by Catchfire Collective, the concert features Gosfield’s “Cranks and Cactus Needles,” a work inspired by the sounds of deteriorating 78 RPM records. Catchfire’s cellist Peter Swanson will perform as soloist during Gosfield’s “Almost Truths and Open Deceptions.” The second half of the concert opens with “Voices Over the Buzz and Clatter,” described by Gosfield as a conversation between industrial sounds and women’s protests throughout history. The concert concludes with Gosfield’s stunning “Detroit Industry: The Goddess Stamps Metal While the Blast Furnace Sings,” inspired by Diego Rivera’s iconic “Detroit Industry” murals.
