In this recital/lecture, violinist and Emory visiting Professor of Music Heidi Senungetuk (Kingikmiut Inupiaq), will present two works that highlight Indigenous modes of creativity in music: For Heidi Senungetuk and “Qutaaŋuaqtuit: Dripping Music.” This program is held in conjunction with the exhibition Each/Other: Marie Watt and Cannupa Hanska Luger, on view at the Carlos Museum through December 12.

The first piece was composed by Raven Chacon (Navajo Nation) as part of his series For Zitkála Šá and the second was created for the ongoing art exhibition Soundings: An Exhibition in Five Parts, which brings attention to concepts of musical score interpretation, Indigenous language revitalization, interpretation of ancestral material arts, and musical performances as acts of sovereignty. Masks must be worn in accordance with Emory University's Gathering Policy.
