Sounds New

A music professor strikes an unusual chord.

Her name says it all. It’s pronounced “fury,” and music professor Ashley Fure creates emotional, startling events. A finalist for the 2016 Pulitzer Prize in Music, Fure premieres a new work this fall at the New York Philharmonic.

Expect what art insiders call a “live-action installation.” One of Fure’s recent pieces mixed theater and sculpture to create what she called an “opera for objects” with sounds made by nonstandard instruments.  “A reconnaissance mission into an auditory wilderness” is how The New Yorker described this ardent acoustic environment.

Fure surfs the edge of what music can be and revels in  “the muscular act of music making,” she says.
