New Chamber Music on Bird Island

Filed under: composition,new music co-op,performance,premiere — travis @ 11:29 am

Excerpt from the program introduction:

“You might be wondering: why have a concert on an island? The space in which a concert unfolds has a profound effect on the musical experience. Whether its an abandoned power plant, a deconsecrated chapel, a neighborhood, or an island, careful attention to this aspect of performance practice has been a theme for NMC composers. When the idea was floated, it immediately clicked for the composers involved that the music should be in conversation with the place.”

“There is also something inspiring about this tiny urban oasis which may not be readily apparent. Although part of the City Parks system, the island has been unofficially adopted by anonymous volunteer custodians inspired to visit regularly and do things like water the grass with a water pump hooked up to a car battery. As a presenter of experimental music, I can relate to this sort of behavior.”

Premiere of my piece “Concerto Laguna” featuring a cello soloist on row boat in the middle of Laguna Gloria. Audience is free to roam around the lagoon as an ensemble of 8 percussionists playing custom made steel bells accompany the soloist. The piece is audible acoustically as well as via lower power FM broadcast. Audience is provided with radios to hear the simulcast and a map of the environment.
