Announcing The Debussy Project

The Debussy Project will take place October 1st and 4th, 7:30 P.M. at Prairie Logic. Prairie Logic is located at the 6th floor of 1271 Main St., Kansas City, MO, which also houses the downtown location of Cosentino's Market; paid parking is available in the building. Admission to the event is free.

The Debussy Project was conceived by FuseBox New Music as a collaborative multi-composer work featuring a full performance of Claude Debussy's 1915 Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp as the basis of its unifying structure. The final project will take the form of an elaborate musical tapestry, interwoven with the diverse aesthetics of composers Zane WinterScott SteeleBen Stevenson, and Cooper Ottum. These composers will compose music to be performed before, after, and in-between movements of the Sonata, as part of a continuous sonic landscape featuring many differing compositional approaches. The work is not simply an extension of Debussy's composition, but rather a re-interpretation of the spirit of innovation embodied in Debussy's seminal work, and an exploration into the possibilities of collaborative composition and inter-aesthetic conversation.

The Debussy Project is made possible by the generous support of the Municipal Arts Commission of Kansas City, which has voiced its support for the project by providing the space, and by a generous grant from ArtsKC.
