Whitewater

This live performance of Elizabeth Kowalski's work, Whitewater, was part of the Freya String Quartet's 2013-2014 Pittsburgh performing series. This particular concert, entitled "Fresh Voices", featured all young composers with unique voices.
(Jason Neukom & Sean Neukom - violin; Jason Hohn - viola; Katya Janpoladyan - cello)
Whitewater is designed to take the listener on the same whitewater rafting experience that I had one summer. Through motives and themes that represent the elements of the actual river and physical rafting experience, the piece portrays feelings of adventure, fear, and glory.

Vanishing Souls/Falling Embers / Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire, Music and Dance

Vanishing Souls | Falling Embers

March 25, 1911, Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire. The sewing factory had narrow staircases, the company never ran fire drills, the building was equipped with faulty fire escapes, and the doors were locked to prevent workers from leaving early or stealing scraps of fabric. As a result, most of the workers were trapped in the burning building and were forced to jump out of the windows. The fire that erupted in one of the largest garment factories in New York City killing 146 people, mostly young immigrant women, became a turning point in the history of the U.S. Labor Movement. The movement, generated by Murphy and cast members, evokes images of textile work, individual workers and their relationships, as well as the fire. The work is an honest attempt to memorialize the victims that unwilling sacrificed their lives to bring awareness to the need for the creation of effective US labor laws and fire safety codes. An original and affecting composition, Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire, by Elizabeth Kowalski conveys emotion and spirit as she addresses both movement and narrative. The choreography entitled "Vanishing Souls, Falling Embers," a 12-minute piece, served as a starting point for "One Hundred Forty Six," an evening length work which further explores the fire through movement, text, video and photography.
