The Making of William Brittelle's DUNES by Stephen S. Taylor from New Amsterdam Records on Vimeo.

Exciting news: The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra just announced that it has established a partnership with New Amsterdam, the non-profit presenting and artist management organization devoted to new music and cross-genre fertilization.

The residency will effectively begin Feb. 1 and 2 with the world premiere of New Amsterdam co-director William Brittelle's Dunes, written by Britelle during a visit to Death Valley last year. Videographer Stephen S. Taylor filmed Britelle while he created and did research for the piece; the results can be viewed below and will be shown during the ISO's pre-concert Words on Music program.

Up next is a March 9 concert featuring New Amsterdam member Shara Worden (of My Brightest Diamond fame) as a vocalist for a performance of New Amsterdam co-director Sarah Kirkland Snider's song cycle Penelope. Also on that bill is Son Lux, performing a variety of his work, new and old, arranged by New Amsterdam members (including Brittelle).
