This Delicate Universe
May 19, 2021 at 12:00 a.m. PDT
"This Delicate Universe" is a five-movement 'choral symphony' by Seattle-based composer Eric Banks set to poetry by Constantin Cavafy (sung in both Greek and English). The music of the Greek sections is mostly in Arabic scales, while the English sections are mostly modal, giving the whole work an ambiguous harmonic character. The film was shot on location at Brock House Society in Vancouver and is directed by Javier Badillo.
