In this gallery-based audio-visual installation, artist and composer Yvette Janine Jackson continues her series The Coding, which debuted in April 2021 as a Fromm Concert for Harvard University. The Coding No. 2 (Synthetic Truths) extends Jackson’s investigation into language and perception, discourse and history, interpreting material from the composer’s Radio Opera Workshop. The Radio Opera Workshop is Jackson (synthesizer, composition, sound design, and video), Tia Fuller (alto saxophone), Judith Hamann (violoncello), Davindar Singh (bass clarinet), Esperanza Spalding (double bass), Rajna Swaminathan (mrudangam), and Taiga Ultan (flute and voice).

The Coding series is made possible by a Live Arts Boston grant from the Boston Foundation.
