Ceremony of the Steps by Jace Clayton
Featuring the Northeastern University Madrigal Singers
Ceremony of the Steps, a performance piece by artist Jace Clayton, highlights two ways in which people join voices and come together – in celebration and in protest. On March 16, the NU Madrigal Singers will perform a selection of their regular standards as well as a new arrangement composed by Clayton in partnership with the chorus. Through its melding of harmony and incessant repetition, Ceremony of the Steps features both a capella song and ambient loops of electronically-altered voices that blend the structure of choral compositions with the recurring chants for social change.
