A new composition for 50 years of the Rothko Chapel, Texas – BBC News

BBC, 12 May 2022
Tyshawn Sorey is a musician, performer, and composer who won a "MacArthur Genius" Fellowship in 2017 for his work.

His style straddles the world of jazz, improvisation, and classical music.

He received a commission from Susan Rothenberg and DACAMERA of Houston to create a piece of music for the 50th Anniversary of the Rothko Chapel.

The music that Sorey composed is a meditative work, a reflection of the non-denominational chapel and the 14 paintings on the octagonal walls by the artist, Mark Rothko.

The chapel is located in Houston, Texas, and is a popular public art space.
