Kate Soper's "Cipher" Now Available on PSNY

Kate Soper's Cipher, for soprano and violin, is now available on PSNY. Composed for violinist Joshua Modney, Cipher is a meditation on language, timbre, text, and intelligibility, melding texts by Jenny Holzer, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Guido d'Arezzo; the work "[exposes the inherent ambiguity of musical temperament, ensemble hierarchy, and lyric comprehension." Presented in four movements (with each movement's name reminiscent attribution on hip hop albums), Cipher is an "exotic score" [NYTimes], a feast for the eyes (and mind) as well as the ears. Check out Soper and Modney performing it at ISSUE Project Room in 2012: 

Soper has been developing her interrogation of language, embodiment, and the seduction of song with her new opera project, "Here Be Sirens," which is currently running at Dixon Place, presented by Dixon Place and Morningside Opera. With a great review in the New York Times, and an in-depth feature on I Care if You Listen, this work is not to be missed. Check out this video of Soper discussing the work during her 2013 MacDowell Colony residency:
