Deemed a “rising musical mastermind" by the Examiner, composer and vocalist Tariq Al-Sabir presents selections from his multi-media, genre-bending song cycle #UNWANTED at the Atrium. Written for a unique ten-piece ensemble that includes voice, woodwinds, brass, percussion, synthesizer, and electronics, this poignant piece centers on Black people’s navigation through social media and access to technology. It examines several ways in which prejudices, phobias, racisms, and more transform themselves to exist online. Al-Sabir, who has premiered and performed commissioned works at Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater, National Sawdust, and MoMA, explores what it means to create and find a virtual community and home, as the cycle communicates in real time with film.
