    CJM plays Berio Sequenza V @ Darmstadt/IPR

    Wednesday, December 1, 2010 - 8:00pm   map

    Darmstadt Essential Rep: Luciano Berio’s Sequenzas I – X (1958 – 1984)
    Admission: $10 / $8 for members

    Luciano Berio (1925-2003) was an Italian composer noted for his experimental work (in particular his 1968 composition Sinfonia for voices and orchestra and his series of numbered solo pieces titled Sequenza) and also for his pioneering work in electronic music. Luciano Berio has always looked at his Sequenzas as building blocks among his other compositions. These solo works, sometimes written for specific performers, exist as elements of other, larger works or as platforms upon which he’s built extensive structures.

    Line-up includes: Claire Chase (flute), Shelley Burgon (harp), Daisy Press (voice), Stephen Gosling (piano), Chris McIntyre (trombone), John Pickford Richards (viola), James Austin Smith (oboe), Jennifer Choi (violin), Joshua Rubin (clarinet), and Gareth Flowers (trumpet).

    Earlier this year, John King released his second CD, “10 Mysteries” on John Zorn’s Tzadik label. King has 2 previous CD releases of music for string quartet; AllSteel (Tzadik) and Ethel (Cantaloupe). Featuring passionate and inspiring performances by the remarkable quartet Crucible with King himself on viola, the music on 10 Mysteries jumps from moment to moment with lightening speed and an organic sense of form. In his second CD on Tzadik he again embraces rock, jazz, blues and other popular styles in an energetic and colorful program for string quartet.

    Crucible will also be joined by the TILT Brass and Charlotte Dobbs, soprano, for the world premiere of SAPPHO presto chango. These 12 short arias are based on the poem fragments of Sappho which are to be performed as an independent layer to the instrumental ensemble. To end the evening, pianist Jenny Lin will perform King's petite ouverture en forme de mErCE CunninGHAm, a piece written for Merce in honor of his 90th birthday.

    Crucible features New York string luminaries Cornelius Dufallo, Chris Otto and Alex Waterman, who perform with such groups as Ethel, the JACK Quartet and the Either/Or Ensemble.

    Led by trombonist and composer Chris McIntyre, Brooklyn-based TILT Brass is a versatile collective of brass and percussion artists that present works ranging from the historical avant garde to commissioned works by composers such as James Tenney, Anthony Coleman, and Lois V. Vierk.

    TILT Creative Brass Band
    Brooklyn based TILT Creative Brass Band (TCBB) is a beautifully strange combination of military brass band and Downtown repertoire ensemble. The group has presented concerts since January 2003 at venues ranging from Whitney Museum to Barbes in Brooklyn. Since its inception, TCBB has fearlessly taken on works from the fringes of experimental concert music, tongue-in-cheek agitprop, and hybrid scores combining notation and improvisation. The group frequently presents entire programs of original works by its composer/performer members (Kevin Norton, Curtis Hasselbring, Nate Wooley, among others) and colleagues from the field, including legendary pianist Anthony Coleman (released on Tzadik), Doctor Nerve's Nick Didkovsky, multi-instrumentist Charles Waters, and cornetist Taylor Ho Bynum.

    In addition, the Creative Brass Band is committed to presenting works from the experimental tradition, ranging from a Varése graphic score from the late 50's and selections from James Tenney's Postal Pieces to works by Fredric Rzewski (Les Mounton de Panurge) and early John Adams (Light Over Water). In June '09, TCBB kicked off a new on-going series of programs called New York Noise which presents historical and current works by important composers from the Downtown community and its ancestors such as Elliott Sharp, Lois V. Vierk, and Rhys Chatham. In 2010, the group will present several programs at ISSUE Project Room and will record and release its current To TILT repertoire.

    Mick Rossi
    Pianist, percussionist, and composer Mick Rossi’s diverse accomplishments include: being among “the most courageous, gifted, and charismatic musicians" of the New York Downtown scene (AllAboutJazz); a long-time Philip Glass collaborator and member of the ensemble as pianist, percussionist, and conductor; and working with artists from Dave Douglas to Kelly Clarkson to Leonard Cohen. He recently conducted Book of Longing at the Sydney Opera House, and performed Einstein at the Beach at Carnegie Hall and Koyaanisqatsi at the Hollywood Bowl. Recent recordings include One Block From Planet Earth (OmniTone), and They Have A Word For Everything (Knitting Factory). His recent concert at Le Poisson Rouge presenting his latest and ninth recording Songs From The Broken Land (Orange Mountain Music) was featured in the NY Times.

    Opening Party for Double-Bill
    Featuring Monuments, a new film by Redmond Entwistle

    (Original music by CJM)
    Runs from Jan 22–Mar 20
    Art in General [website]
    79 Walker Street
    New York NY 10013

    “Double-Bill” is a group exhibition curated by New Commissions artist Redmond Entwistle that includes his new film Monuments along with works by Mary Billyou, Suzanne Goldenberg, Rafael Sanchez, and Kathleen White. Using seating salvaged from various defunct cinema spaces, a temporary cinema will be assembled in the gallery featuring twice-daily screenings of Monuments as well as two series of films. The first series is about the early New York film avant-garde and the second is a selection of recent film and video work by artists including Marianna Ellenberg, Erik Moskowitz and Amanda Trager, Raha Raissna and Stom Sogo.

    Starting with Monuments, a retelling of the story of Post-Minimalism and its relationship to New York and New Jersey in the vein of comic horror, “Double-Bill” brings together a series of works that share B-cinema’s ethics and dilemmas of autonomous production and its achievement of magical and critical effects through minimal means. These works are interspersed with and interrupt the makeshift cinema. A projection booth will be at the entrance to the gallery and on the wall of the booth are a series of text paintings by Mary Billyou. Behind the cinema screen and lit by studio lights is Rafael Sanchez and Kathleen White’s ongoing assemblage and street performance Book Sale. Intermingled with, and obstructing the collection of, cinema seating are Suzanne Goldenberg’s paper, wood and cloth sculptures.

    Issue Project Room [website]
    232 3rd Street
    Brooklyn, NY

    Every musical event is accompanied by an often unacknowledged and yet not-so-silent partner. The built environment reflects, refracts, and remakes sound, and performer and audience act and listen under the influence of its formal language. Architectures of Sound assembles an evening of unusual performances that attend to this convergence of sound and built space. Artists Casey Thomas Anderson, G. Douglas Barrett, Anthony Ptak, Charles Stankievech, Jacob Sudol, Michael Winter, and curators Cameron Hu and David Kant will present new work that interacts with the singularities of the performance space - its materiality, its geometric form, its historical specters and its vanishing present.

Paired with a soundtrack by Chris McIntyre, this video takes Alvarez’s whole concept into a shape-shifting and ever-evolving engagement."

    Chris McIntyre presents
    To TILT: Original Music for TILT Brass

    Composer, trombonist, and producer Chris McIntyre presents New York-based TILT Brass' two projects, TILT SIXtet and TILT Creative Brass Band, with a full evening of extraordinary new Downtown brass music. This event kicks off TILT's on-going concert series To TILT: Original Music for TILT Brass. To TILT focuses solely on repertoire written for TILT's distinctive ensembles, with works that often embrace the playerly, composed/improvised hybrid aesthetic developed in New York's Downtown scene over the past 40 years. The Roulette program features 3 world premieres, 2 for SIXtet by the legendary Anthony Coleman and pianist/composer Pete Drungle, and the third by McIntyre for the 10-piece Creative Brass Band. Also featured are pieces by TILT Brass members (Curtis Hasselbring, Nate Wooley) and its esteemed colleagues John King and Nick Didkovsky. The personnel for this special event is filled with some of the best all-around instrumentalist/artists New York City has to offer, including Kevin Norton, Joe Fiedler, Russ Johnson, John Clark, Gareth Flowers, Jacob Garchik, and both Hasselbring and Wooley.
