About the work
Gaia, is an artistic look at climate change which causes environmental and geopolitical challenges and which in turn cause unrest and population displacement. Hatzis’ approach to the climate change theme has been to musically explore two specific regions of our world which are being most heavily impacted by the phenomenon of climate change: the Fertile Crescent and the Arctic. Two singers representing the cultures of these two regions, Maryem Hassan Tollar, a Sufi singer, and Tiffany Ayalik, an Inuit throat singer, epitomize the cultural dialectic between the migrant and nativist viewpoints, with the orchestra and the SurroundSound electronics mediating the two viewpoints. This project was previously titled Syn-Phonia (Migration Patterns) and is still in development.
