Composer-performers Antonia Barnett-McIntosh and Jessie Marino are in residence to develop Susceptible Chambers, an EMPAC-commissioned project that seeks to discover new sonic possibilities by augmenting pre-existing musical instruments and fabricating new ones. They return for residencies in January and March of 2024, leading to the work’s premiere in April.
