Flutronix presents a mesmerizing vision of the flute reimagined, featuring selections from this high-octane duo’s unique electro-acoustic repertoire. World-changing composers and performers, Allison Loggins-Hull and Nathalie Joachim meld classical music, hiphop, electronic programming and soulful vocals in a creative partnership paving the way from their classical roots to the future of music. In their mini-residency at the Library, Flutronix explores the 1,600+ flutes in our Dayton C. Miller Collection, and performs compositions grown from deep connections to concepts of community and social justice. You will encounter memorable excerpts from Discourse, a performance activism initiative, and from Black Being, a stunning, immersive song cycle examining the complexities of black womanhood.
