Eighth Blackbird

Hand Eye

For Hand Eye Eighth Blackbird teamed up with renowned composer-performer ensemble Sleeping Giant to tackle this collection of new works, whose sounds and moods span from the jazzy and cinematic to the dark and expressionist. Ted Hearne’s By-By Huey is a thrilling and vivid piece that feels like it could score a noir film, relying on the deep resonances of the bass clarinet, cello, and piano for its driving momentum. Andrew Norman’s Mine, Mime, Meme focuses on a postmodern, improvisatory-feeling violin solo to express the mercurial nature of internet memes.
