Violinist Alexi Kenney and new media artist Xuan combine their creative forces in an immersive multidisciplinary program that joins solo violin works from the 18th to 21st centuries with boundary-pushing projection art. Music by J. S. Bach and Nicola Matteis flows seamlessly into works by new voices such as Rafiq Bhatia and Angélica Negrón, as Xuan conjures immersive, imaginative landscapes on the themes of fracture and repair in response.

Produced in collaboration with the Ojai Music Festival, with visual art commissioned by Baryshnikov Arts.
