An exploration of religious devotion, AND a reason to mash together Kanye and Palestrina.
Debuting in June 2017, UltraSicut Beam is a holy exploration in what some may consider its unholiest form: a mashup fusing Giovanni Palestrina's "Sicut Cervus" and Kanye West's "Ultralight Beam," as well as some light electronic elements. The piece was commissioned and performed by award-winning NYC vocal ensemble Choral Chameleon, led by Vince Peterson.
UltraSicut Beam premiered at Choral Chameleon's "Around and Around" concerts in June 2017. Recording to come soon.
