Conversation with LA Composers of Modulation: Juhi Bansal, Carmina Escobar, Jojo Abot, and Yvette Janine Jackson

Posted on: February 2, 2021

Presented in collaboration with the Prototype Festival, Modulation is a ground-breaking exploration of opera and theater adapting to a new format. Audience members are in control as they navigate through a landscape of new musical pieces—each with its own visual component—exploring the strands that weave together our lives over this past tumultuous and revelatory year. With themes of isolation, identity and fear, with the connection of breath, the experience brings together 13 of the most provocative and diverse voices in the contemporary music idiom. In this conversation, we are honored to welcome four of these extraordinary composers, all of whom are Los Angeles natives or based now in Los Angeles. Composer Juhi Bansal welcomes Jojo Abot, Yvette Janine Jackson, and Carmina Escobar.

Please note that this conversation delves into contemporary issues and includes adult language which might not be suitable for all listeners.

Modulation can be accessed on LA Opera's website until February 28, 2021 at 8:59pm PT.
