Black Meridian is a theatrical recital of new music for voice, saxophone, and electronics centered upon black holes and the relativity of spacetime. These interrelated subjects are explored both literally and metaphorically, weaving a narrative of loss, boundaries, forbidden knowledge, and transgression through video projections, spoken word, stage motion, and six newly commissioned pieces by diverse composers (in addition to three extant compositions).
