About the Event

Unfolding River is an 81-piece series of avant-classical music based on the Tao te Ching of Lao Tzu. Composed and produced by Tom Richards, Unfolding River began life as an experiment to "translate" each character of the text into music. Over the past 10 years, it has evolved, become dormant, and re-awakened in a new form. All of these pieces have been recorded, but this will be the world premiere live performance of (a few of) the pieces, co-produced by Upstream and suddenlyLISTEN for the Upstream Music Festival 2023.
