Gavin Bryars’s The Sinking of the Titanic has been called “devastatingly poignant” by Uncut magazine. Taking countless forms and variations both musical and visual in performances around the world, ours will be heard at the Pan-Am Pool, the water, in effect, becoming the virtual protagonist. In this piece, Bryars explores the prolongation of music into eternity through the metaphor that sounds once generated never die. Composer Matthew Patton will premiere a new parallel work to Titanic, based around a more personal haunting trauma of the present age, a plane crash.
