Artist Conversation with Julia Wolfe: 2020/21 Season

April 30, 2021

A Conversation with Cal Performances Executive and Artistic Director Jeremy Geffen

Cal Performances Executive and Artistic Director Jeremy Geffen sits down with Steel Hammer composer Julia Wolfe to discuss the genesis of the piece, how it was the inspiration for the Illuminations thread “Fact or Fiction,” the challenges of changing a large-scale live performance to a recording in the midst of a pandemic, and more in this Beyond the Stage artist talk.

This artist conversation video was recorded in conjunction with the Bang on a Can; Julia Wolfe’s Steel Hammer performance, part of the Cal Performances at Home Spring Season.
