Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center 

From Troy NY’s Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center:

Speicher, an evening-length concert work by German composer Enno Poppe, is a project that has been in development since 2008. Premiered at the Donaueschingen Festival in 2013 to widespread acclaim, Speicher pushes its 22 players to their interpretative and technical extremes. Complex rhythms, microtonal intonation, and nuanced textures combine together to create a rich and detailed work of ambitious scale and scope.

Enno Poppe’s music, which he summarizes as “dented nature,” grounds itself in compositional guidelines influenced by acoustics, biology, and mathematics. As his composition unfolds, he gradually disobeys his own rules, contorting material to create an unstable, constantly evolving, almost hallucinatory atmosphere of unexpected sounds.

Morton Feldman: For Philip Guston

Richard Carrick – piano
Margaret Lancaster – flute
David Shively- percussion

The performance of Feldman’s For Philip Guston by Either/Or has been hailed for its “musicianship – and endurance – at its finest, and composition at its most enduring and extraordinary.” Presented with generous support from MAMM, the work will be performed without interruption in an “open door” concert in Meng Hall, free and open to the public. The Sunday performance will be the crowning event of the weeklong festival dedicated to inter-arts collaboration and creativity.
