Nebraska-Based Creators

The KANEKO Generator Series returns with its first event of 2020, “The State You’re In,” which will explore the music and art of Nebraska-based creators. This will be a program that asks questions: What is unique about living in Nebraska? How can we characterize our state beyond the catchy slogans and branding campaigns? What does Nebraska sound like? Is there a specific acoustic character to our state? Where are we shaped as listeners and creators by the sonic qualities of the Great Plains? 

The State You’re In features a world premiere by composer Stacey Barelos which weaves narrative reflections from the community with string quartet, as well as music composed by composers Mathew Fuerst, Dana Murray, and Anothony Donofrio, poetry by Amanda DeBoer Bartlett, and a special art installation by Susan Knight.

About the Generator Series: Presented by KANEKO and Omaha Under the Radar, the Generator Series will present events that investigate music’s relationship to our physical world, seeking the connections between sound and architecture, sound and natural landscapes, sound, and the human body, and more. Focusing on music by living composers, including sound improvisation and experimental composition, the Generator Series will be an outlet for non-commercial music that asks questions about how we listen and how we interact with sound in the 21st century. 

About Omaha Under the Radar: Omaha Under the Radar is an annual experimental performance festival in the Midwest. We celebrate cultural innovators with performances throughout the city of Omaha. The festival emerged from a desire to support innovative performers and creators living and working in the Midwest, and to connect this community to other performance communities throughout the United States. 

Since the first festival, held in 2014, Omaha Under the Radar has presented over 200 artists from more than one dozen cities throughout the United States. We work to present a multiplicity of genres, ideas, and identities through performances, talks, group discussions, and educational opportunities. Omaha Under the Radar is a 501(c)3 Nonprofit Organization. To make a tax-deductible donation in support of our programming efforts, visit our SUPPORT page.
