Composer David Lang collaborates with Suzanne Bocanegra to bring her meditative
installation Dialogue of the Carmelites to life. Music created by David Lang and sung by
Caroline Shaw, with sound design by Jody Elff, accompanies Bocanegra’s work for the
exhibition Bel Canto. In this performance, Lang directs four singers to perform the score live.
The lyrics, crowd-sourced from the Internet, are presented in a whispered chant, a sonic
rosary, and are meant as a meditation on a life in community, a life never alone.
