Newspeak

Newspeak is an eight‐piece amplified ensemble working under the direction of composer David T. Little and clarinetist Eileen Mack. Named after the thought‐limiting language in George Orwell’s 1984, Newspeak explores the grey area where art and politics mix, seeking to reconsider, redefine, and ultimately reclaim the notion of socially engaged music. By embedding elements of a rock band into a classical new music ensemble, Newspeak also confronts the boundaries between the classical and the rock traditions.
