wasteLAnd presents music driven by collective action and creation, both in the act of composition and in community-based realization. The program features world premieres by Richard Barrett and Nicholas Deyoe in addition to radical works by Raven Chacon, George Lewis, Pauline Oliveros, Sarah Reid, and Wilfrido Terrazas. These works explore degrees of improvisation, highlighting the necessity of communal action and negotiation in these collective creations while also reflecting on grassroots political collectivism.
