Just a personal profile but you if you are an artist , you could have a musicians profile if you , if you were a musician who wanted to showcase their music. And so I stumbled upon Alison’s profile pretty randomly one day and listen to some of her music and I was like who is this sweetest you know creating music that’s really interesting and also quite similar to what I’m doing right now . At that time . I was really just beginning to experiment with a lector acoustic music and so I sent her a message and I just said you know our Thelma with the music I really like him , I feel like we should be friends . We should know each other and it turned out actually that she lived in my neighborhood just blocks away from me , so she wrote me back , and she said , you know . Yeah , sure we should hang out sometime and probably within a few days after that I I sure enough just walked on over to our house and we spent the afternoon in her living room just talking to each other about our wives . You know our paths up to that point with music and where we were and I think we were both finding it that we had lived these parallel lives and that we were , they were just intersecting actually at precisely the right moment intersecting .
And really , often a new trajectory how how did that conversation. Where did you imagine yourself going after that Alison or because of that . First meeting .
Well , I was so excited , actually to meet now like it’s it’s very unusual to meet someone who is artistically so like minded but who also have had similar experiences and also similar points of view like just outside of music life in general. Like we really we really hit it off so that the whole thing just felt very own think twice about working with her . And I guess he was a complete stranger . We had mutual friends in common . But I I really didn’t know her at all , but at the same time there is something that almost , I can’t really explain that as you know , let me know like you know what this is someone who I think I want to work with and let’s go ahead and embark on this journey together images it is felt really right and I got the immediate sense that Natalie was someone who is very focus very committed very hard working . I can just I I pulled out from her personality right away and from just talking with her and that’s definitely the type of person that you want to work with on something as crazy as like flutes and electronic new music and you know who knows what it is . Yeah .
Let’s hear how that turned out another cut from 2.0 out the album of by through trying ex.
That is a song called lifelines Natalee’s. Washington and Alison logins Hull , better known as flu try next as you say , the song is lifelines flu performs Friday night at 8 o’clock on the campus of UNC-Chapel Hill and Natalie also doing a residency right with Carolina Performing Arts tell us a little bit about that and what the residents is all about .
Sure , we’re actually really excited for tomorrow night’s performance because it sort of their kick off of our residency and in fact over the next 2 years here thanks to Carolina performing arts as both both Commissioner and the host of our residency will be building a new evening length work called discourse Alison and I a few years ago are really feeling as I’m sure a lot of people FL confused and little confounded by the state of things in our country right now and feeling actually just quite disconnected from other communities and other people around us and so we were really hoping to respond to that with an artistic initiative that invites people to engage in conversation with one another and connect with each other’s personal narratives and so will be here in Chapel Hill well went and have a whole right now , but we will be in Chad well over the course of the next 2 years over a series of visits connecting with community partners like the Mary Jackson Center the southern Oral History program and also people from from the UNC campus. You can be doing interviews with yeah interviewing them well caring about their stories in their experiences engaging in their communities .
And all of this into a final performance I said well , so if we were there 2 years from now we’ll hear some sampling some music and we didn’t even get into the whole electronics because we’re out of time now. But I wanted to talk with you more about about that we’re out of time , but I want to thank you so much for joining us quite clear Natalee’s wash is a flute is the vocalist and composer , and producer Alison logins Hall is also composer and together they are flu trying X and they will perform tomorrow night at UNC-Chapel Hill’s means you’re auditorium part of the Carolina Performing Arts new season and you can find out more at our website state of things.org .
