About the event

5th Wave Collective makes its New Music Gathering debut, presenting the world premiere of a newly commissioned work by Ruby Fulton: the girl who cried pain: a theme & variations. Written especially for 5th Wave flutist Anatolia Evarkiou-Kaku, this piece is a musical reflection on pain, pain relief , the perception of pain, and the effect of one's gender on being believed about pain.

5th Wave Collective members Anatolia Evarkiou-Kaku (flutes), Carmen Abelson (violin) and Rebecca McDaniel (vibraphone) will share a bill with New Gallery Concert Series, Duo Extreme, and José Martínez. The pre-recorded concert will begin at 1:00pm Central Time, and will be streamed via Zoom.

New Music Gathering is an annual conference/festival hybrid dedicated to the performance, production, promotion, support, and creation of new and forward-thinking music. The 2021 New Music Gathering is a hybrid event, with in-person, streaming events taking place in St. Paul, MN, from August 12-14, and all-virtual programming taking place August 14-18.

Creation of this work is partially supported by a Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events Individual Artists Program grant, and by a grant from the Idaho Commission on the Arts.  

Special congratulations to 5th Wave flutist Anatolia Evarkiou-Kaku, who spearheaded the commission of this work.
