Percussionist Christopher Clarino will present the rarely-performed masterpiece by Karlheinz Stockhausen: INORI.

Written in 1974, Karlheinz stockhausen's INORI is a rarely performed, concert-length work for soloist and electronic audio playback. Created by one of the 20th Century’s most notoriously challenging composers, INORI is an exploration of the gestures of prayer and religious ritual as they appear in cultures from around the world. Inside the performance, the soloist makes no sound, and instead moves through a series of meticulously choreographed gestures that coincide with Stockhausen's luminously orchestrated score. This profound work takes the audience on a deeply meditative journey, punctuated by moments of despair and shocking violence.

INORI will be performed by San Diego-based percussionist Christopher Clarino, who is currently touring the piece across the United States and in Brazil. As the first person to perform this extremely virtuosic work in the U.S., Clarino's approach to the material is equally rooted in his experience interpreting some of contemporary music's most challenging percussion works, as well as his time as an interpreter of American Sign Language. By merging ritualistic gestures and musical expression, INORI is a unique and moving experience not to be missed.
