The US Premiere of Alvin Lucier's SO YOU (Hermes, Orpheus, Eurydice) for clarinet in b-flat, cello, female voice and 9 amplified wine jars (2017), commissioned by documenta 14 
Jessika Kenney, voice 
Charles Curtis, cello 
Anthony Burr, clarinet 
Tom Erbe, sound design 
During the course of the performance, a cellist, clarinetist, and a female singer sustain long tones against descending and ascending electronically generated pure waves. As they do so audible beats are produced determined by the distances between the players’ tones and those of the continually sweeping pure waves. 
The text consists of the first two words of selected stanzas of the poem, Eurydice, by American poet H.D. (Hilda Doolittle, 1886–1961).
