Annie Gosfield, dubbed “a master of musical feedback” by The New York Times, presents a world of things transformed, where acoustic sounds confront their distorted mirror images, abstractions become reality, and signals drift into outer spaces. Real becomes surreal, as warped records, jammed radios, and vacuums sing. One included work will be A Mother’s Note and a Single Vote, written for the centenary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote. The piece is about making one’s voice heard in a noisy world, in a NYC premiere by Pauline Kim Harris (violin) and Vicky Chow (piano).
Composer Edmund Campion, Director of the Center for New Music and Audio Technologies at University of California Berkeley, presents Recumulations, a piece for metal triangles, electronics and video by Claudia Hart; Alice Unchained II, for computer-driven percussionists Russel Greenberg and Bill Solomon controlling artist Claudia Hart’s virtual dancers in real-time; and the world premiere of Late Bloomer, a virtuosic work with electronics, composed for NYC pianists Marilyn Nonken and Manuel Laufer.
