Outer Limits is a new commissioned program with four diverse composers that are working with music in different directions. The evening will include composers Tristan Perich (USA), Nik Bärtsch (Switzerland), Pete Harden (UK/The Netherlands), and Vanessa Lann (USA/The Netherlands) In the work of Tristan Perich, we feature two dueling pianos juxtaposed against a web of 1-bit electronics in a raucous nancarrow-esque piece. In the Nik Bärtsch, he has written a three movement work conjuring deep rhythmic grooves and virtuosic unison licks with beautiful mesmerizing suspension. Pete Harden will be writing a work that will be an improvised map of sounds, based off of butterfly migration patterns, and in the case of Vanessa Lann, she will be creating a theatrical work with poetry and movement.
