mer is a new 40-minute piece for chamber orchestra that traces the many facets of human consciousness, awareness, and experience. This minimalist sound-painting by Seattle composer John Teske will be premiered by the Broken Bow Ensemble, a 26-piece group of strings and woodwinds. Guided by local tide data, the orchestra will slowly transform sound through time, unraveling layers of pitch and rhythm. These concerts are supported in part by the Seattle Office Arts & Culture CityArtist Project.
