The month of August brings an end to the 2014-2015 season after a successful year and an amazing summer music festival (festival.mise-en.org/2015). The last concert will be August 24, 2015 at the cell and will begin at 8pm. New music will be showcased from our ensemble-in-residence collaboration with I-Park, an international art colony in East Haddam, CT. Six composers have been invited to write a semi-complete composition written specifically for this instrumentation. The work will be brought to completion in collaboration with the ensemble during the residency and will present 6 new pieces.

The six composers completing residency with I-Park are as follows: Daniel Fishkin, Eun Young Lee, Pascal Le Boeuf, Hakan Ulus, Rafael Amaral, and Sang Song. Fishkin has performed as a soloist on modular synthesizer with the American Symphony Orchestra, developed sound installations in freight elevators and abandoned concert halls. Young’s work has received the first prize at Tsang-Houei Hsu International Music Composition Award and the 2008 Max Di Julio Prize at the Nevada Encounters of New Music (N.E.O.N.) Festival. Le Boeuf has established himself as a leading figure in the next generation of jazz artists with three albums as “Le Boeuf Brothers”, several studio projects as a sideman, and countless worldwide performances. Amaral has been awarded with 1st place in the classical music category and with the mentoring prize in the general arts category in the University Competition Arts, Program Nascente. Song is a Korean-born composer based in New York City. He is a graduate of Seoul National University (B.A. in Aesthetics), Columbia University (Ph.D. in Philosophy) and Yale Law School (J.D.).

The music being featured will be a result of I-Park hosting an experimental, onsite Composers + Musicians Collaborative Session from August 16 to 24, 2015. The goal is to enrich the traditional creative process involved in bringing a music project from concept to concert. The program will pull together a group of composers, our performing ensemble and our music director, Moon Young HA in an intimate, immersive residency setting.
