Jay Hamilton: Who are you, and how do you know?

Jay Hamilton & the Turtling Dithers ( Maurice Colasurdo, Roger Nelson, Paul Karaitis). Who are you, and how do you know? explores how we perceive ourselves, how we think we are perceived, and how we are remembered. The piece is in three sections: the Overture sets out some ideas about this; Lir, based on a story in Brut by a secular English priest circa 1200, is about building an empire to be remembered. Enkidu, from Gilgamesh legend, is about how even shards can keep us remembered thousands of years later.
