On this episode of GET TO KNOW YOU, we discuss another thought-provoking topic; ‘ Why do we ignore the red flags? ’. This week, I’ll be sitting down with Sugar Vendil https://www.nytimes.com/2021/10/05/magazine/dorland-v-larson.htmlSugarvendil.com . She is a composer, pianist, choreographer, and interdisciplinary artist based in Brooklyn. She started her artistic life as a classical pianist, and after spending nearly a decade searching for her own voice, her practice evolved into performances that integrates sound, movement, and unconventional approaches to the piano. She writes and performs her own solo music for piano and electronics and has a keyboard/synth duo, Vanity Project, with composer Trevor Gureckis. Vendil is a proud second generation Filipino American.Vendil was awarded a 2021 MAPFund grant to support Antonym: the opposite of nostalgia. Recent commissions include Chamber Music America to write a new work for her ensemble, The Nouveau Classical Project, which she founded in 2008; ETHEL’s Homebaked 2019 for Unsacred Geometry, and ACF | Create to write for Box Not Found. Tune in as we discuss; inspiration behind a composer, creative dance, absence of empathy, the main reasons we ignore red flags and what to be aware of.
