Icelandic composer and Golden Globe winner Jóhann Jóhannsson joins American Contemporary Music Ensemble and the 2014 Grammy Award–winning vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth to perform two world premiere pieces, Chaconne, performed by violinist Yuki Numata Resnick, and Drone Mass, a contemporary oratorio which fuses the sounds of string quartet, electronics, and vocals, and uses texts based on the Coptic Gospel of the Egyptians. Realized in the Met's magnificent Temple of Dendur in The Sackler Wing, among dazzling artifacts and architecture of ancient Egypt, and commissioned by ACME in celebration of its tenth anniversary.
