    CJM Sounds features a set of compositions created by composer/performer Chris McIntyre. morphi studies is an on-going project that situates the trombone's sound and idioms within various types of electronically produced contexts. It is a collection of short works created as both a solo vehicle for the composer and as a way to explore the capabilities of MAX/MSP and conventional "tape piece" techniques. quartet music for trumpet, horn, bass trombone, and Nord Lead 2 was first inspired by a commission from the organization Composer's Concordance and the brass trio B3+. Part 1, since revised, was premiered in March 2008. Tonight's performance is the premiere of the complete three-movement work. Its aesthetic lies somewhere between historical Vareseian "organized sound" and 21st century stylistic inclusivity. quartet music strives to be playerly ensemble music while proffering a distinctive vision of 21st century chamber music.

    Program:
    morphi studies for solo trombone and sound
    McIntyre - trombone & laptop

    quartet music: parts 1,2 and 3 for brass trio and Nord synth
    Josh Frank - trumpet, Mike Atkinson - French horn, Dave Nelson - bass trombone, McIntyre - Nord Lead 2

    Time Out New York says:
    "Yes, we’re prone to hyperbole on occasion, but trust us when we say that Darmstadt’s Essential Repertoire series, which runs through Oct 26, is one of the most significant musical presentations of the season. In each concert, prominent interpreters explore an aspect of contemporary-classical music past or present; the series gets underway with a program devoted to music of the New York School—John Cage, Earle Brown, Morton Feldman and Christian Wolff—and no one illuminates this realm with more sympathy and conviction than the players of Ne(x)tworks."

    About the AACM

    Since its founding on the virtually all-black South Side of Chicago in 1965, the African-American musicians' collective known as the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM) has played an unusually prominent role in the development of American experimental music. The composite output of AACM members explores a wide range of methodologies, processes and media. AACM musicians have developed new ideas about timbre, sound, collectivity, extended technique and instrumentation, performance practice, intermedia, the relationship of improvisation to composition, form, scores, computer music technologies, invented acoustic instruments, installations and kinetic sculptures.

    In a 1973 article, two early AACM members, trumpeter John Shenoy Jackson and co-founder and pianist/composer Muhal Richard Abrams, asserted that, "The AACM intends to show how the disadvantaged and the disenfranchised can come together and determine their own strategies for political and economic freedom, thereby determining their own destinies.” The AACM's goals of individual and collective self-production and promotion challenged racialized limitations on venues and infrastructure, serving as an example to other artists in rethinking the artist/business relationship.

    The musical influence of the AACM has extended across borders of race, geography, genre, and musical practice and must be confronted in any nonracialized account of experimental music. To the extent that AACM musicians challenged racialized hierarchies of aesthetics, method, place, infrastructure and economics, the organization's work epitomizes the early questioning of borders by artists of color that is only beginning to be explored in serious scholarship on music.

    The internationally prominent and ongoing example of the AACM expanded the range of thinkable and actualizable positions for a generation of experimental musicians, and challenged conventional understandings of American experimental music, obliging the recognition of a multicultural, multi-ethnic reality, with a variety of perspectives, histories, traditions and methods. These evenings of AACM music at the Kitchen, presented in conjunction with the emergence of George E. Lewis’s important new book, A Power Stronger Than Itself: The AACM and American Contemporary Music (University of Chicago Press, 2008) are intended to give listeners a notion of the diversity of musical thinking and cultural influence that has emerged from this groundbreaking artists’ collective.

    MATA Interval 2.1 - Grúpat/Jenny Walshe & Object Collection

    Wednesday, September 17, 2008 - 8:00pm - 10:00pm   map

    MATA Interval 2.1
    Music of the Dublin collective Grúpat
    Performed by Object Collection and curator Jennifer Walshe
    Doors Open at 8PM

    MATA kicks off the second season of its bi-monthly series Interval with a program of music by the radical and enigmatic South Dublin collective Grúpat. Curated by Irish vocalist and composer Jennifer Walshe, Grúpat's greatest champion, Interval 2.1 features the collective's eclectic blend of textural and playful music, performed by Ms. Walshe and up-and-coming New York interdisciplinary group Object Collection

    Grúpat collective
    “So what is sound? Is it stillness? Does it shock flesh, the drums, the mind squealing? Is it the resolution or the tension? The silence or the not silent? So we sit or stand and even to hear the wildest anti-musical noise or nothing—it is still a creature in a jar. We want to free the creature. This is the point of everything you’ve heard before. The point, the sharpness of it, the moment where the idea takes shape and enters the flesh, drawing blood, opening bodies to air, not a penetration but a commingling, an embrasure, a knitting together, spillage and contamination—to set the creature free. Sound is the creature. Sound is a thing with feathers.” — Grúpat

    For individual Grúpat Composer bios, please visit http://www.matafestival.org/interval/?p=31

    Jennifer Walshe was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1974. She studied composition with John Maxwell Geddes at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, Kevin Volans in Dublin and graduated from Northwestern University, Chicago, with a doctoral degree in composition in June 2002. Her chief teachers at Northwestern were Amnon Wolman and Michael Pisaro. In 2003-2004 Jennifer was a fellow of Akademie Schloss Solitude, Stuttgart; during 2004-2005 she lived in Berlin as a guest of the DAAD Berliner Künstlerprogramm. From 2006 to 2008 she is the composer-in-residence in South Dublin County for In Context 3. In 2007 she was awarded a grant from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, New York. She frequently performs as a vocalist, specialising in extended techniques. Many of her recent compositions were commissioned for her voice in conjunction with other instruments, and her works have been performed by her and others at festivals such as RTÉ Living Music (Dublin), Donaueschinger Musiktagen, the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, Composer’s Choice (Dublin), SoundField (Chicago) the Internationale Ferienkurse für Neue Musik Darmstadt, Stockholm New Music, and BELEF (Belgrade). Jennifer is also active as an improviser, performing regularly with musicians in Europe and the U.S.
