James Cornish

Multi-instrumentalist and composer James Cornish has a low profile for somebody so prolific. He’s written three experimental operas, is a co-founder of the Great Lakes Ensemble, and is probably the only person to ever have performed with both Faruq Z. Bey and Jandek. Much of his activity has been offstage, whether composing music for dance performances in Detroit parks or putting together the Radical Music Detroit series to foster experimental music in the city. This week, he begins his residency at CAID with an original vocal work, “Twilight and Steel,” featuring an ensemble that includes vibes, winds, viola, live dance, mezzo-soprano vocals, and Cornish on the horn.
