Project Description:
a song cycle of lives in transit
An exciting and inspiring work of music and poetry by composer Vijay Iyer and librettist Michael Ladd, In What Language? is an urban song cycle that explores expressions of cultural identity and persistent stereotypes in an age of expansive global diaspora through a series of interior monologues by fictional passengers in transit at an international airport. Scored for an ensemble of seven musicians and three speaking voices, the piece draws upon a broad range of musical influences including experimental jazz, hip-hop, African rhythms and South Indian Classical dance music.
