Wavefield Ensemble to Perform Works by Abbasi, Cheah, Helgeson & Boulez

Source: Wavefield Ensemble.

New York’s newest new music collective, Wavefield, begins its existence through a residency at MANA Contemporary in Jersey City, culminating with its debut performance on Saturday November 3 at 7pm.

Inspired by the novel Rewrite by Bulgarian-Canadian author Temenuga Trifonova, Wavefield offers a concert of works on revisiting, reimagining and revising.

Aaron Helgeson’s Echoes of Always is an overt reimagining of Baroque overtures and is being given its East Coast premiere. Anahita Abbasi’s Situation 2 (for which our first concert is named) is the second in her series of situational pieces, and is receiving its US premiere. Victoria Cheah’s elegantly static I watched her smile her hand receives its premiere concert performance.  Pierre Boulez’s virtuosic and rarely heard Dérive 2 is the apotheosis of revision: the expansion of the ideas of his earlier Dérive 1, the piece slowly grew from a 5-minute-long birthday present to Elliot Carter in 1988 into Boulez’s 45-minute magnum opus in 2006.

Wavefield Ensemble is a collectively organized group of musicians dedicated to performing music and creating new artistic work at the highest level, and to actively engaging in educational activities geared toward inspiring the next generation of artists and performers. We aim to collaborate with like minded artists, performers, and thinkers of all stripes, and to offer a platform for all whose work demands it. Our goal is to share this work as broadly as possible and in so doing to inspire those we contact to a more deeply creative engagement with the world.
