Great Noise Ensemble’s founder and Artistic Director, Armando Bayolo, has been blogging over at Sequenza 21, where he’s now in the process of chronicling GNE’s upcoming production of Louis Andriessen’s opera masterwork De Materie, which will be presented at The National Gallery of Art on October 24, 2010. This is a truly epic undertaking for any ensemble, especially one like GNE, and the realization of a long-held dream for Armando and many other members of the group. Read his thoughts on the process over at the Sequenza 21 Forum.
