earspace is a contemporary performance ensemble dedicated to creating invigorating multi-sensory performances of music worth believing in. We seek to expose the inherent potentials within every moment and space, cultivating visceral reactions unique to every manifestation. Through our projects, we explore the extremities of contemporary performance and work to bring audiences closer to the music they experience. earspace has performed across the Triangle at CAM Raleigh and less typical venues like the Google Fiber Space, as well as other venues across North Carolina.
In March 2018, earspace was in residence at the UNC-Chapel Hill Music Department. During this residency, the ensemble both collaborated with students from the department to present the multimedia oratorio Shelter by Michael Gordon, David Lang, and Julia Wolfe, accompanied by the films of Bill Morrison, and presented a program featuring works by Simon Holt, Anna Thorvaldsdottir, Donnacha Dennehy, and Ted Hearne. earspace continually performs the music of today’s leading composers, including the premiere of “instill,” a four-hour work by D. Edward Davis, and is committed to furthering the performance and creation of new and innovative works.
