In this emotionally resonant new work from flute and electronics duo Flutronix, the voices and personal stories of Chapel Hill are brought to vibrant life. Commissioned by Carolina Performing Arts, Discourse draws inspiration from—and incorporates—individual stories from this place for a stunning immersive musical performance in the intimate setting of CURRENT ArtSpace + Studio.

Created over a two-year residency at Carolina Performing Arts, the seeds of Discourse were planted in response to the fear, uncertainty, and frustration dividing the US. From it was born a new artistic work that is of, by, and for the Triangle community. Flutronix premiered a sneak peek at this new work during their September 2018 performance at Carolina Performing Arts.

Enhance your experience: visit the audio-visual installation Discourse: The Listening Room at UNC’s Wilson Library. See below for more details.
