Young classical composers bring their new and contemporary works to the Everson Museum of Art.

Sunday at the Everson Museum’s Hosmer Auditorium, the Society for New Music presented an afternoon of evocative contemporary art music from young up-and-coming composers of “The Now Generation.”

The program, attended by a sparse but attentive crowd of about fifty, was the first of the new year for the Society for New Music, an organization founded in 1971 to commission new works, advocate for new music and its creators, feature regional and guest composers, and provide opportunities for musicians in central New York.

Jordan Eagles, an artist who uses pig blood to create his work, will be speaking at the Everson Museum of Art about his inspiration. His exhibit, 'Red Giant,' will be on display through Jan. 5.

In 1998, art hobbyist Jordan Eagles slathered his canvas with red paint until it dripped down the white surface. The New York University student was trying to represent blood, but he was failing. His images looked flat; they weren’t coming alive like he’d wanted them to.

So he went to Chinatown and bought a pint of pig’s blood.

“I tried not being symbolic of the blood, but using authentic material,” he said.

He never looked back.
