About the Show

Experts in both contemporary and early music, ModernMedieval interweaves in The Living Word ecstatic chants of 12th-century mystic Hildegard of Bingen with newly commissioned electronic and vocal music by Australian/Icelandic composer/producer Ben Frost and Puerto Rico–born composer Angélica Negrón, who perform their new works live with the ensemble. Electronic/pop singer/composer Julianna Barwick, who was featured in the Walker’s 2012 Sound Horizon series, also joins ModernMedieval for her new extended work Adder.

Children should be 14 years of age or older to attend this performance.

  • This performance will be an inventive collaboration of unique artists. Their collective sound may be unlike what you’ve heard before. Listen to the videos posted below and you may be able to imagine how their voices will fit together. In a sense they are like most people, in that we each are comprised of many different qualities and traits that may not seem to fit together from the outside, but in fact fit very well in our individual identities. What would someone be surprised to learn about you, that they couldn’t guess from looking at you?
