The Rutgers Electro-Acoustic Lab (REAL) presents Sounds from the Weave, four installations of electroacoustic music by women composers from around the globe. Supporting the art exhibition A Complex Weave: Women and Identity in Contemporary Art, these installations showcase the myriad ways that women have expressed issues of their identity and gender through their music.69 composers from 18 countries submitted over 100 works for consideration. 33 works were chosen to represent how women composers from diverse backgrounds have woven the the threads of identity into their work. Each installation is one hour in duration.All are welcome to visit the gallery during these times and reflect on the art and take in the sounds. Admission is free. Mark Zaki, composer and assistant professor of composition is the director of REAL –

who is she? fragile as superman

who is she so precious for a moment fleeting on wings
to heaven away from me i let her go and compose a song
for what else can i do but let the rain fall

who is this spirit so precious
that should bless us with her presence
and i miss you i won’t forget your gifts
for space is not so far as your eyes see through me

supermans in the hospital breathing fragile
giving us this moment to remember
we are like babies on either side of the womb
on the other side of the womb fragile life special love
skin and bones and spirit fragile as superman

who is she so precious for a moment fleeting on wings
to heaven away from me i let her go and compose a song
for what else can i do but let the rain fall

who is she? fragile as superman
supermans a quad and lois lanes manic depressive
capable able cape able of great leaps and bounds
so dis the dis d-d-dis the dis i am able
dis the dis you are able dis the dis we are able!
who is she? fragile as superman
