NEITHER SEPARATED, NOR UNDONE, by Los Angeles-based composer Derrick Skye, is the composer’s latest installment in his ongoing Anthems of a Crowd series, which interweaves vocal traditions from around the world.
Featuring a libretto of his own writing, NEITHER SEPARATED, NOR UNDONE explores the shifting and sometimes contradictory worldviews humans may hold throughout their lives. Full of optimism, joy, and warmth, Skye’s music melds infectious global rhythms from raga to Bartok, employing African percussion, vibraphone, and strings.
