Dory Hayley – i love evil

Works by Morton Feldman, Rodney Sharman, Jordan Nobles, Cassandra Miller, and Katerina Gimon


Morton Feldman (1926-1987) is the composer of some of the most profoundly radiant music of modern times, and his mesmerizing Three Voices, a “quiet tour de force,” is among his most powerful, affecting, and deeply human works. Scored for three equal voices but intended to be performed by a single singer accompanied by her own pre-recorded sounds, Three Voices is one of the most significant, original, and influential vocal works of the 20th century.
i love evil presents the monumental Three Voices alongside four newly commissioned multi-tracked vocal works inspired by Feldman’s masterpiece by four of Canada’s most thoughtful and innovative composers.
