I'm very excited to be a part of this series. Below, the press release, for your information! I hope you can all make it. See you there!


Income inequality is the focus of the next concert of Julie & Elizabeth's Anti-Capitalist Concert Series. New music quartet Cadillac Moon Ensemble will premiere pieces by composers Jeff Nichols, Julie Harting, Chi-hin Leung, and Inés Thiebaut whose compositions were inspired by graphs showing income inequality. The graphs will be projected during the performances.
 
The concert will also feature spoken interludes and conversation led by Chad Kautzer, Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Colorado, Denver and author of the book “Radical Philosophy: An Introduction.” Kautzer sees inequality as a foundational element of capitalism. “Capitalism transforms everything it comes in contact with into conditions for its own reproduction and, more specifically, for the accumulation of capital.  Capitalism emerges under conditions of great inequality, and it can survive only by reproducing such inequality.”  Chad Kautzer, Radical Philosophy (2015).
 
The concert is the fourth concert produced by “Julie and Elizabeth’s Anti-Capitalist Concert Series,” a new music concert series founded by composers Julie Harting and Elizabeth Adams. The series programs music and conversation to stimulate thought and discussions around an anti-capitalist economy.
 
In addition to the four premieres, Cadillac Moon Ensemble will perform Nicholas Deyoe's “fl/vn” for flute & violin and an excerpt from Annie Gosfield's “Daughters of the Industrial Revolution” for cello and percussion, a piece inspired by her grandmother who worked in sweatshops in the Lower East Side.
