Promissus in Madrid

December 6, 2015

On  December 12, my piece Promissus will have it's Spanish premiere by the hands of Julián Elvira. Below, is the Spanish press release:

Julián Elvira en el VII Ciclo de Conciertos de Solistas Fundación BBVA

El próximo 12 de diciembre de 2015 tendremos la oportunidad de escuchar en Madrid una magnífica selección de piezas compuestas expresamente para flauta Prónomo, de la mano de su creador Julián Elvira.

El repertorio cuenta con obras de compositores españoles de gran prestigio como los premios nacionales de música José Mª Sánchez-Verdú y Alberto Posadas, pero también promueve la creación de jóvenes compositores que se encuentran en pleno auge de su carrera, como Julián Ávila e Inés Thiebaut. El programa se completa con tres obras versionadas por el propio Julián Elvira para flauta Prónomo, que no sólo reflejan la capacidad de este nuevo instrumento como interfaz capaz de convertirse en otras flautas, sino también la reflexión sobre cómo interpretar obras clásicas con instrumentos de vanguardia en la actualidad.

Este concierto se incluye dentro de la séptima edición del Ciclo de Conciertos de Solistas Fundación BBVA, coordinado y ejecutado por el conjunto instrumental PluralEnsemble.

JULIE & ELIZABETH'S ANTI-CAPITALIST CONCERT SERIES WITH CADILLAC MOON ENSEMBLE AND CHAD KAUTZER SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2015 7:30 PM

JULIE & ELIZABETH'S ANTI-CAPITALIST CONCERT SERIES
INCOME INEQUALITY
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2015  7:30 PM
TENRI CULTURAL INSTITUTE
43 WEST 13th STREET
NEW YORK, NY

Admission Suggested Donation

No one is turned away.


I'm very excited to be a part of this series. Below, the press release, for your information! I hope you can all make it. See you there!


Income inequality is the focus of the next concert of Julie & Elizabeth's Anti-Capitalist Concert Series. New music quartet Cadillac Moon Ensemble will premiere pieces by composers Jeff Nichols, Julie Harting, Chi-hin Leung, and Inés Thiebaut whose compositions were inspired by graphs showing income inequality. The graphs will be projected during the performances.
 
The concert will also feature spoken interludes and conversation led by Chad Kautzer, Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Colorado, Denver and author of the book “Radical Philosophy: An Introduction.” Kautzer sees inequality as a foundational element of capitalism. “Capitalism transforms everything it comes in contact with into conditions for its own reproduction and, more specifically, for the accumulation of capital.  Capitalism emerges under conditions of great inequality, and it can survive only by reproducing such inequality.”  Chad Kautzer, Radical Philosophy (2015).
 
The concert is the fourth concert produced by “Julie and Elizabeth’s Anti-Capitalist Concert Series,” a new music concert series founded by composers Julie Harting and Elizabeth Adams. The series programs music and conversation to stimulate thought and discussions around an anti-capitalist economy.
 
In addition to the four premieres, Cadillac Moon Ensemble will perform Nicholas Deyoe's “fl/vn” for flute & violin and an excerpt from Annie Gosfield's “Daughters of the Industrial Revolution” for cello and percussion, a piece inspired by her grandmother who worked in sweatshops in the Lower East Side.

alcmaeon gets a new performance

October 28, 2014

Happy to hear the wonderful Cadillac Moon Ensemble will be performing the piece I wrote for them last year, alcmaeon (for amplified flute, violin and percussion) at their upcoming Perfect Nothing Catalog concert. Excited! Here is the information:

December 11, 2014, 8pm
Signal Gallery 260 Johnson Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11206

Perfect Nothing Catalog
CME premiers Conrad Winslow's the perfect nothing catalog with support from the Jerome Fund. The perfect nothing catalog references the structure of Caryl Churchil 's 2012 play Love & Information, in which a large thematic arc is drawn by tiny non-repeating miniatures. It was also inspired by Frank Traynor's the perfect nothing catalog which interrogates the power of curation and restricted control in the making of things. CME will also perform works by Inés Thiebaut and Andrew Struck-Marcell.
