BRENDON RANDALL-MYERS: DYNAMICS OF VANISHING BODIES
Composer Brendon Randall-Myers continues his artist residency at Roulette with Dynamics of Vanishing Bodies. Bookended with solo and duo sets by Randall-Myers and vocalist Doug Moore, Dynamics of Vanishing Bodies will premiere two large pieces by Randall-Myers written from opposing angles — first, a set of microtonal electro-folk songs for soprano Eliza Bagg, and second an electric guitar quartet for DITHER. At play are psychoacoustic effects (timbral fusion and phantom rhythms) created by overtone interaction, interlaced with gradual decay in cycles at a nearly-imperceptible scale.
