Artist-in-Residence: Yarn/Wire with Tristan Perich Chalk

Yarn/Wire, an ISSUE Artist-in-Residence for 2012, premieres a new work Chalk by composer Tristan Perich. Perich’s work is inspired by the aesthetic simplicity of math, physics, and code. His album 1-Bit Symphony (2010), a microchip packaged inside a CD jewel case and programmed to synthesize an entire composition, had “an intense, hypnotic force and a surprising emotional depth,” (Wall Street Journal). Yarn/Wire straddles the DIY/punk and classical worlds, also collaborating previously with Pete Swanson of Yellow Swans and Nathan Davis of International Contemporary Ensemble.

Harvestworks Presents: No-input Summit – Toshimaru Nakamura, Philip White, Bob Bellerue, Bonnie Jones and Phillip Stearns

On Sunday, April 29, 2012, Harvestworks will produce an investigation into the phenomena of no-input, a style of sound art using internal mixer feedback to generate sound. Presentations will feature No-input icon Toshimaru Nakamura who will be joined by sound artists Philip White, Bob Bellerue, Bonnie Jones, and Phillip Stearns in a panel that will explore the limits of the sound-generating technique, it’s influence on the audience and how each artist has expanded their equipment to address stylistic concerns. The panel will be followed by a performance with special guest Gene Coleman where participants will exhibit the their idiosyncratic approaches to controlling an instrument that defies control.

04/30 @ 8:00pm

MATA Festival, With Quartet New Generation and JACK Quartet

From NYTimes.com:

The peripatetic MATA Festival has had homes in various corners of Brooklyn and Manhattan over the last 15 years. Now Brooklyn has become the nerve center of the youthful, vibrantly eclectic indie-classical movement that has always been an important part of MATA’s DNA, so it made sense for the festival to set up at one of that style’s outposts, Roulette, in its new quarters on Atlantic Avenue.

Still, the festival has always sought scores from around the world, and if the Brooklyn style suffuses its offerings, that is probably because the spotlight here is on young composers whose defining quality is not their place of origin but their freewheeling approach to musical materials — including noise and silence — and ways of assembling them.
