For Hand Eye, six dazzling young instrumentalists collude with six leading lights in contemporary composition to create a new evening-length work that defies stylistic boundaries. The Chicago-based, three-time Grammy-winning new music ensemble eighth blackbird, collaborates with the daring New York composers collective Sleeping Giant. Together, the composers create a suite for the ensemble, embracing a wide range of sounds, from rambunctiousness to lyricism, athletic virtuosity to atmospheric beauty.
