Taking Refuge In The Two Principles

 

 

This concert for solo voice by Julius Eastman was held at Jeffrey Lohn's loft at 33 Grand Street. Illuminated by a single light-bulb, Eastman sang texts that he had written whose central statement was "I take refuge under the umbrella of two principles--Universality and Impartiality." The music, which reviewer David Garland described as "relentless," demonstrated Eastman's full vocal range, as well as his significant control with quick grace notes and dynamic shifts.
