Extradition Series 2018 Spring Concert
Saturday, April 21st
Leaven Community Center
5431 NE 20th Ave. @ Killingsworth, PDX
Doors 7pm, music 7:30pm

The Extradition Series 2018 Spring Concert will feature five works of extraordinary experimental composition:

Richard Glover, “An Imperfect Harmony” (2013): A simple, deeply resonant composition exploring microtonal harmonies on the double bass.

Catherine Lamb, “Nodes, Various” (2009/10): Using a defined frequency set, this open-ended piece asks a group of musicians to explore the tonalities of saw-wave oscillations and their low overtones.

Mark So, “a tepid atmosphere (bedroom near the sky)” (2007): Part of a series of pieces based on the poetry of John Ashbery, “a tepid atmosphere” combines field recordings, electronics, and other instruments to slowly shift the listener’s perspective within what seems like a static sound environment.

Jurg Frey, “Floating Categories” (2015): Scored “for reader, listener, player alone, maybe performer(s),” this sparse dreamscape mixes words and phrases, short melodic fragments, and grids of colored dots, challenging performers to translate images and feelings into aural and visual content

Michael Pisaro, “Entre-Moments” (2005/6): Combining separate pieces for piano, instrumental trio, and group electronics, “Entre-Moments” is concerned with projecting a sparse amount of musical material across long durations

Ben Glas, “Self Composure #2 (Memory Sequence)” (2018): Part of our participatory “Extradition Off-Site” series, this new sound meditation by Portland composer/performer Ben Glas is designed to be performed by anyone, musician or non-musician, outside of the concert setting, at the time and place of their choosing. The score will be available as a Facebook event within a four-week window around the concert date.

Featuring performances by: Andre St. James , Matt Carlson, Derek Ecklund, Ben Glas, Branic Howard, Juniana Lanning, Evan Spacht, Matthew Andrews, Brandon Conway, Mike Gamble, Matt Hannafin, Loren Chasse, Douglas Detrick, Jacob Mitas, Lee Elderton, and Catherine Lee
