Program



























Electro Acoustic

Anna Terzaroli - Dark Path #2

Dark Path #2 is an acousmatic piece of electroacoustic music. The sounds used in the piece, processed, then "composed" together to create the musical work, were recorded in a soundscape dear to author, located in the Italian region of Marche. Dark Path #2 can be defined as a journey through light, shadow, shape, color, drifts and landings.


Carlos Felipe Hernández Sarmiento - Parciales Relativos

My electroacoustic work "Partial Relative" aims to propose a different way of presenting the partials comprising musical timbres. The presentation of these partial fragments is based on Bezier paths defined by the general equation





The timing of the work took as inspiration the theory of special relativity by

Albert Einstein in which the time reference system depends on what measures it.

For this, the work was built on two temporal planes, where each plane has its time reference.

The only sound material is the  'cello note C.


Robert Fleisher - Loretto Alfresco

This brief tape piece is one of several musique concrète experiments created in my teens. Recorded under a tree on a small Wisconsin farm, the percussionist is Tom Loretto. Loretto Alfresco transforms his wholly human and largely improvised solo performance on found percussion  objects into an apparent super-human (or super-natural?) duo. Premiered during the 2009 NYC Electro-Acoustic Music Festival, Loretto Alfresco  has since been heard during a dozen music festivals in the USA and abroad; it is also included in the SEAMUS release, “Electroacoustic Miniatures 2012: Re-Caged,” Allan Kozinn (New York Times) has written: “Loretto Alfresco is endearingly low-tech: its sounds are drawn

entirely from recordings of friend striking pots, pans and other items, which Mr. Fleisher sped up and overlaid to create a rich, tactile texture.”


James MacDonald - Broken Limbs

Broken Limbs explores two things of importance to me. The first of these things is technology. I have always been attracted to technology; ever since I was a kid, I enjoyed setting up and tearing down audio and visual equipment and learning how it works. Once I began writing music I immediately began considering ways to use various types of technology to better my art. The second of these things is nature; I grew up in a small rural town in Maine near a lake. I’ve always enjoyed activities such as camping, canoeing, cycling, and other various outdoor activities. With this composition, I wanted to use the technology I surrounded myself with to emulate the beautiful nature I grew up with.


Robert Fleisher - Altro Alfresco

Altro Alfresco shares the same natural sound sources and minimal processing as its diminutive cousin, Loretto Alfresco. Both were created c. 1970 and waited patiently for their first public hearings. Premiered during the 2011 SEAMUS conference at the University of Miami, Altro Alfresco also features two obbligato wind parts: in the upper register, Sharon Mattlin playing soprano recorder; in the lower register, the more robust (and proximate) sounds of Mother Nature. Most recently, it was heard in the Audiograft Festival Jukeboox produced by the Sonic Arts Research Unit at Oxford Brookes University (U.K.), in live stream broadcast on AIR/EAR: Radio Alimento (Argentina), and during the Society of Composers, Inc. (SCI) region IV conference at Eastern Kentucky University.


Beatriz García Barreto - Central through Harlem

a sonic exploration of Manhattan's iconic neighborhood



Video

Robert Morton - Resinous Scent of Sap

Walking through a forest with branches overhead and the sun peaking through leaves,

I take a deep breath and feel the peacefulness.

Then I decided that I can alter the forest bliss with an interactive jitter patch.


Robert Morton - Repetition Chain

The production of an ordinary chain and the heavy metal machinary explored with live

manipulation of the light, saturation, and contrast.


Video & Sound

I. R. Marin - Techno

People vs Machines (technology, devices, etc.)


Beatriz García Barreto - Sputnik Cycles

This piece was created out of a few quotes from Sputnik Sweetheart, by Haruki Murakami.

All of the sounds, are words distorted, mostly with delay designer and reverb. Even the drum sounds were created by cropping different consonants from the speech. The only instruments in this piece are the violin and voice. The video was created independently by Bart Vodstrup and happened to match perfectly (with a few modifications) with the audio I worked on.


Solo Violin

Leonidas Sakellides - Song of Spring

Songs of Spring is an improvisatory piece in the sense that it is built around the juxtaposition of different ideas that were put down in a 'musical diary'. As the ideas progressed it became evident that the piece itself, as it was expressed by the subconscious of the composer, started to explore the idea and the application of different types of 'touches' being applied to the violin. To be more precise, the piece seemed to develop around different ways of applying pressure to the bow and the strings by using both arms. This at times resulted to a tendency and need not to produce notes but to use the notation towards the notion of a tablature, although this never occurred in the piece. At a macroscopic level, these areas of activity, using different types of sound, produce surfaces or even 'magmas' -as I prefer to call them- of different temperatures and different textures. The consistency in the piece is achieved through the juxtaposition and development of these elements.


Greg Bartholomew - Meet Me in Srinagar

Srinagar is the largest city and the summer capital of the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. 

Srinagar is home to one of India's premier technical institutes, The National Institute of Technology Srinagar, one of the oldest of the National Institutes of Technology that were established during second Five Year Plan.  Dedicated to Joao G. DaSilva, Douglas DaSilva, and Denise Stillwell, Meet Me in Srinagar was composed for the My Dad's Violin project and premiered

by Denise Stillwell on the Composer's Voice concert series in New York City.


Solo Bass

Richard Dubugnon - Deux évocations finlandaises

2 short bass solos from Dubugnon's Recollections of Finland: Menuet Carelien and Hamara,

inspired by a visit to Finland.


Solo Flute

Leonidas Sakellarides - Six Monologues for Solo Flute

These six short pieces were composed as a reflection to various short Ancient Greek Epigrams,

which were engraved on tombstones. The epigrams show the attitudes of the relatives of the dead or the opinions of people that have died, on life itself. The pieces make use of serial techniques and are based on the juxtaposition of different tempos, meters and characters. The mood and the meaning of the poems, as well as their actual text, often serves as a structural element on these pieces

(for example in the construction of small motivic ideas or the choice of forms). Simplicity remains a key issue on the pieces, whereas the juxtaposition of the music with the original texts of the

Epigrams (as well as their English translation) leads to a final presentation much closer to the

Greek tradition of combining logos and music.


Clarinet, Violin, Guitar

Stephanie Greig - Casino Lullaby

Based on the endless C-major arpeggio that arises from the hundreds of slot machines on any casino floor. This sound evidently makes gamblers feel luckier.


Bass Clarinet, Violin, Bass

Tom Blatt - Radar

We're almost constantly immersed in the sound of machines from background noise to an in our

face barrage of noise from construction and traffic. Perhaps this piece which is "quiet"

is a reaction to that noise.


Flute, Clarinet, Violin, Bass

Andersen Viana - Em Ré (In D)

is an experimental piece, kind of “open work ” destined to any group of instruments. The form that is used in this work is the canon with 13 (thirteen) independent parts, where each structure is repeated 7 (seven) times before passing to the next one.


Bass Clarinet, Violin, Fixed Media, Video

Whitney George - Anamnesis

is a black-and-white, experimental film in three parts made by Frans Zwartjes in 1970.

A man and a woman, Trix Zwartjes and Lodewijk de Boer (Zwartjes’s regular actors) circle around

each other in a house and outside at the water side. Exploring the relationship between the

two characters, aspects of both the film and the live music continue to  both attract and

reject each other throughout the course of the work.


Text Based Composition

Darold Cuba - And Still We Wait

is a harsh & provocative indictment and  exposition of injustice, esp with regards to the

recent rampage of unmitigated racism seen in all forms in the western world of late.



The Drawing Room, 56 Willoughby Street, Downtown Brooklyn, NY

Whitney George

Whitney George is a composer and conductor who specializes in the use of mixed media to blur the distinctions between concert performance, installation art, and theater. Utilizing a wide variety of material including literary texts, silent film, stock footage, and visual arts, George's compositions are characterized by an immersive theatricality that thrives on collaboration in all phases of the creative process. Her affinity for the macabre, the fantastic, and the bizarre frequently gives rise to musical programs that evoke the traditions of phantasmagoria and melodrama, challenging musicians to experiment liberally with their stage personae, and audiences to widen the scope of their attention. 

She is the artistic director and conductor of The Curiosity Cabinet, a chamber orchestra formed in 2009 whose members were culled from a network of close collaborators within New York's diverse new music scene. The Cabinet's live performances often engage playfully with the prototype of the classical concert, imbuing even non-theatrical compositions with elements of drama. The ensemble has participated in the inaugural CUNY New Music Festival and was invited as the ensemble-in-residence at the Hartford Women Composers Festival in 2012.

George holds an undergraduate degree from the California Institute of the Arts, a masters degree from Brooklyn College Conservatory, and is currently continuing her studies as a PhD candidate at the CUNY Graduate Center, where she studied with David Del Tredici, David Olan, Bruce Saylor, and Tania Leon. In addition to her composing and conducting, George teaches at the Brooklyn College Conservatory, works at the Hitchcock Institute of American Studies and is the Managing Director for New York’s American Modern Ensemble (AME).

Ann Warren

In 1999, I founded Concrete Timbre as a studio performance group to create and record new music compositions, soundscapes, sound installations, and several theatrical sound designs. In 2005 we moved out of the studio and have produced contemporary music in a theatrical setting as well as theater performances that feature music and sound including: 4 Wars, Folie Pure, Coq tôt, Satie's Birthday Party, Un Lieu de Vie, Anna Strong's Laundry, Age of Pain(e), Voices of justice and consangunity..., and Dziewczyna. Each of these interdisciplinary productions featured the talents of more than 20 artists.

As a composer and sound designer, my compositions have been performed at many (many!) innovative performance spaces in New York, Paris, Baltimore, Buffalo, California, and Florida. I’ve been lucky to work with some really inspiring interdisciplinary artists with a flair for the contemporary (!)

So for now, I try to keep the music great, the story interesting, the visuals stimulating, and the movement fresh - and of course, then wind them into a spectacular melange. Merde! For more information, visit www.AnnWarren.net.

Darold Cuba

Darold Cuba

After almost two decades of stinting with think tank after non-profit, politician after academic researcher, Darold is a recovering tech, media & policy analyst, a #GeekNerdWonk now stretching creative muscles and creating authentic stories after being dismayed for too long at the horrendously erasing & barbaric revisionist nature of the Western mainstream media.  Long interested in exploring, researching, & telling stories not told by the mainstream, and unpacking the why, what & how of such, Darold has dedicated his life to doing just that, beginning with his own gigantic and multicultural family's many diverse stories, lifted straight from real life & history.

Past work includes: The Brothers Keppard - the story of the creole brothers, jazz legends credited by Guggenheim Fellow musicologist Lawrence "Larry" Gushee with bringing the mesmerizing "sound of New Orleans" "to the world." The Families Of Asheville - tracing the Native Indigenous AmerIndian, African & European origins of his 118 year old maternal Baird Family Reunion in NC, in part with DNA testing of each ethnicity to follow the genetic stories of each intertwined culture making up one big historical city of interlocking ancient families. BOYS-BROS-GUYS-MEN - the #YouCantMakeThisSh*t up saga of his life, beginning particularly with a best friend's childhood suicide at age 11 that he promptly repressed for the next 20 years. Cuba Hill - the centuries old family farm of his paternal East Texas creole family, its storied existence & the efforts of the millennial generation of the family to turn it into a dude ranch with commercial marijuana production, sparking an almost fraud between the old guard & the new guard. Graham Court - the storied saga of the oldest luxury building above Central Park, built by an Astor and inspired by the Housing Crash of 1907 & the  Depression to anchor the beginnings of the Civil Rights Movement in Harlem, NYC. And, The Adventures of Dara And Drew - a children's book documenting the wildly lovable childhood adventures of his niece (age 3) & nephew (age 1).

You REALLY can't make any of this stuff up.
