Willson Center Distinguished Artist: Noa Even

Cleveland-based saxophonist and Kent State faculty Noa Even explores themes of human connection with "atomic," a commissioning project of four new works for solo saxophone, interactive electronics, and video. The impetus behind "atomic" is the idea that finding or cultivating common ground with individuals from diverse backgrounds leads to greater awareness, understanding, and empathy. In close collaboration with Even, the composers and video artists of "atomic" focus on the following topics: the long-lasting affects of human interactions, the increasingly visible and thriving transgender community in the United States, silenced voices resulting from stricter American immigration laws, and regret, a universal human emotion.
