Shelter, refuge. A shelter that provides protection against the outside world and its dangers, physically and emotionally. A primary need, 'living' and 'build' instinct. A human right, a matter of course. Not at all obvious.
Shelter began as a collaboration between three composers (Julia Wolfe, David Lang and Michael Gordon) and a filmmaker (Bill Morrison). The result is a grand, captivating multimedia oratorio with large ensemble and video, specially written for the voices of Trio Mediaeval. It focuses on the various aspects of the home / shelter: the aesthetic beauty of building on the rituals of coming home to the destructive forces of nature that bring all that at risk.
