Before the opera premieres at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago this fall, Roulette is pleased to present selections from American composer George Lewis' Afterword: The AACM (As) Opera. Developed in collaboration with director Sean Griffin and media/theater artist Catherine Sullivan, Afterword is the aesthetic extension of Lewis' widely acclaimed book on the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, A Power Stronger Than Itself: the AACM and American Experimental Music (University of Chicago Press, 2008).
