live BROADCAST on FRIdAY, APRIL 23 AT 6:30 P.M.
ALYSSA WEINBERG Still Life
ANNA MEREDITH Two Movements for Trumpet and Quartet
ANNA MEREDITH Tuggemo
MARCOS BALTER Bladed Stance
This program is inspired by the synthesis between deep rhythmic pulse and electro-acoustic alchemy. We begin with Alyssa Weinberg’s Still Life, bending the line between modernism, groove, with totally surprising and fresh colors in the way she blends the clarinet and strings. This warms up our ears for Marcos Balter’s Bladed Stance, which breaks the acoustic barrier, blending the instruments in waves of color that suggest an electro-acoustic palette. The final two works by Anna Meredith, Two Movements for Trumpet and String Quartet and Tuggemo pick up the colors from the Balter and take it to the max, concluding the program with an epic electronica groove-scape between the string quartet and composed electronics.
