Joseph White‘s opera, You Against Nature, ingeniously brought to life by ThingNY, is a potpourri of song, text, visual candy, and sonic froth based on 19th century decadent novel, “Against Nature.” Your People Saying Hello is the solo project of composer/percussionist Aaron Siegel. Equal parts storytelling, poetry reading and sonic ritual, Your People performances feature synths, spoken texts, songs, and percussion.

You Against Nature:
Joseph White – Composer
Gelsey Bell – Vocals, Keyboard
Andrew Livingston – Cello
Paul Pinto – Vocals, Percussion
Erin Rogers – Saxophones
Dave Ruder – Laptop, Narration

Your People Saying Hello:
Aaron Siegel – Composer, Percussion, Voice, Synthesizers

You Against Nature is a new opera by Joseph White, commissioned by ThingNY. Blending elements of monologue, Webernian pointillism, karaoke, and electronic klangfarbenmelodie, You Against Nature offers a maximalist sound world with a lean, stripped-down ensemble of merrymakers. Based on Joris-Karl Huysmans‘ remarkable, and remarkably-decadent 19th century novel, “”Against Nature,”” You Against Nature explores timely themes of isolation, decadence, hedonism, and the limits of self-sufficiency.
