election year: a Work in progress
(Spring 2016) Kyle Saulnier
election year: a Work in progress is a symphony unfolding over the course of what promises to be the most volatile election year in recent memory. A three-part performance series spanning the entirety of 2016, new movements will be composed in response to real-time events during the election season. The first performance took place on March 20, 2016—in the midst of the primary season—and entered on the chaos of the early presidential race. The second performance is scheduled for July 14, 2016, mere days before both the Republican and Democratic National Conventions. The final performance is scheduled for November 11, 2016, only three days after the 2016 election.
