    CJM Music at Roulette

    Friday, December 8, 2006 - 8:30pm - 10:00pm   map

    Composer and trombonist Christopher McIntyre has been developing a number of large ensemble projects in the past few years, both as a leader and collaborator. Several of them will fill Roulette's stage during this event, including TILT Brass Band, Lotet and Ne(x)tworks. A thread that carries through each group is both technical and spiritual: mapping the space between composition and improvisation. In the process of making pieces for these bands, an immersive and colorful aesthetic has emerged in McIntyre's work. Tonight's program offers a full evening of this repertoire, as well as new works commissioned by Roulette with support from the Jerome Foundation and performed by an impressive array of new music’s heaviest-hitters. 

    The first half of the performance features scores written for the composer/performer band Ne(x)tworks, including the premiere of Herkimer [string_sets], a set of dynamic "rhythmicles" for strings and electronics.

    Ne(x)tworks is Joan La Barbara (voice), Stephen Gosling (synthesizer), Kenji Bunch (viola), Yves Dharamraj (cello), Cornelius Dufallo & Ariana Kim (violins), Shelley Burgon (harp & electronics), Miguel Frasconi (glass instruments & electronics) Peter Evans (trumpet) and McIntyre (trombone & director).

    Members of the McIntyre-led ensembles TILT Brass Band and Lotet, along with some very special guests, join forces on the second half to perform a set of isomorphic & abstracted musical structures. In addition to expanded works from the Lotet repertoire, "LoTILT's" set includes Metaxis, an electro-acoustic environment that uses a hybrid score of cellular and strategic notation. Grouped in pairs, the instrumentation on hand fuses the timbral bliss of TILT with the low frequency undulations of Lotet's live-electronics.

    With: Nate Wooley & Peter Evans (trumpet), Curtis Hasselbring & Steve Swell (trombone), Ron Caswell & Joe Exely (tuba), Charles Waters (bass clarinet), Colin Stetson (bass saxophone), Kato Hideki (bass & live-electronics), John King (live-electronics & guitar), Ryan Sawyer & Mick Rossi (percussion), and McIntyre (trombone & director).
