Hans Tammen's Dark Circuits Series: Judy Dunaway - Interactive Works For Balloons

At Spectrum's Dark Circuits Series Judy Dunaway will coax an unimaginable universe of sounds from various oversized amplified latex balloons coupled intimately with interactive electronics and video projections designed especially for use with the balloon instruments. She will present "Hommage à Kenneth Noland," a new piece for amplified giant balloon, interactive synthesis and interactive video projections shown directly on the balloon's surface. Other works will include "Interactive Piece for Tenor Balloon," a duet between her "Tenor Balloon" and an Artificial Intelligence synthesis improv partner combined with video projections, and a new work for amplified dirigible-shaped balloon instrument.

Judy Dunaway is an avant-garde composer, free improvisor and conceptual sound artist who is primarily known for her sound works for latex balloons. Since 1990 she has created over forty works for balloons as sound conduits and has also made this her main instrument for improvisation. She has presented this work at many major venues throughout North America and Europe, and has CDs on the CRI and Innova labels, among others.

http://www.jeweltone16.org/judydunaway/

Judy Dunaway has presented her balloon works at Academy of Media Arts Cologne (Cologne), Avant-Garde Schwaz Festival (Austria), Alternative Museum (NYC), Bang on a Can Festival (NYC), Everson Art Museum (Syracuse), Frau Musica Nova Festival (Cologne), Fylkingen (Stockholm), Galerie Rachel Haferkamp (Cologne), Guelph Jazz Festival (Canada), Le Lieu Unique (Nantes, France), Lincoln Center Out-of-Doors (NYC), Logos (Gent, Belgium), New Museum of Contemporary Art (NYC), Performance Space 122 (NYC), Podewil (Berlin), Roulette (NYC), CEAIT Festival (Los Angeles), Séance Ecoute (Paris), Seltsame Musik Festival (Krems, Austria), SoHo Arts Festival (NYC), STEIM (Amsterdam), Zentrum fuer Kunst und Medientechnologie (Karlsruhe) and many other venues. She has performed as a balloon player in compositions by John Zorn and Roscoe Mitchell, and in improvisations and/or collaborations with the FLUX Quartet, performance artist Annie Sprinkle, video artist Zev Robinson, visual artists Nancy Davidson and Ken Butler, percussionist John Hollenbeck, the Illuminati big band, DJ Singe, and numerous others. Recordings of her balloon works are available on CRI, Innova, Outer Realm, Alku, Balloon and Needle and many other labels. Her creations for balloons include both electronic and multi-media works and compositions that incorporate more traditional instrumentation such as chorus, piano, saxophone, string quartet and Japanese koto. She has a Ph.D. in music composition from Stony Brook University and an M.A. in experimental music from Wesleyan University where she studied with Alvin Lucier.

"Dunaway is utterly fearless in her approach to her craft, and unflinching in the face of inevitable backlash from both her classical and avant-garde contemporaries..." (Meredith Yayanos, Coilhouse Magazine)

Following Hans Tammen's "Dark Circuits" Festival in June 2014, Spectrum's "Dark Circuits Series" features performers who work in contemporary electronic music practices such as circuit bending, no-input mixers, laptops, turntablism, analogue circuitry, network sniffers, live coding and soldering, plus other instruments we may have never heard of yet.

Virginia Guastella (Italy), piano

SUL TASTO - Virginia Guastella

Sul tasto is a piano solo project that blends elements of avant garde jazz and contemporary concert music.

"Sul tasto" is used in musical notation for string instruments in order to indicate that the performer has to play on the fingerboard, which produces a soft color. The composer wants to put the same music materials in different combinations and contexts of timbre, acknowledging formal structures and traditional approaches to the sound of the instrument.

Every element has different perspectives that the composer presents to the listeners: They can contemplate the diversity of musical ideas.

Robert Morris Festival, Presented by Augustus Arnone

Concert I - Electronic Installation Works

Augustus Arnone, piano, and Robert Morris, Electronics

Mysterious Landscape (2012)

Entellechy (2012)

(pre-concert discussion with Morris at 7pm)

September 15-18, 2016, Collide-O-Scope Music will join forces with the JACK Quartet and guest artists AnNa Sunghae Lim, Margaret Kampmeier, and Tara O'Connor to present a 4 concert festival of the music of the distinguished American composer, Robert Morris. The festival will draw together music representing over four decades of the composer's career, demonstrating a tremendous range of stylistic developments and technical innovations. One of the most unique aspects of Morris, as a composer, is the diversity of influence evident in his music. On the one hand, he's a prolific figure in the culmination and expansion of serialist technique in America in the past 50 years, exploring ever increasingly sophisticated forms of organization and complementing the work of his peers Milton Babbitt, Charles Wuorinen, and others. At the same time, he is one of the American composers who has been most deeply influenced by non-Western music, and has engaged in considerable study of Arabic, Indian, Indonesian, and Japanese musics. Working with diverse media forms is another central aspect that sets Morris apart in our contemporary landscape, as he has pursued electronic music and live sound signal processing to highly specialized ends, and has written music that utilizes improvisation as well as interactive meta-composition.The confluence of his wide-ranging interests come together in a singularly unique compositional voice that emobdies the quintessential American erudite, pan-historical, and pan-cultural composer. The programming on this festival showcase the range of his output with concerts devoted to his electronic installation works, works for solo piano, works for mixed ensemble, and finally works for string quartet.

About Collide-O-Scope Music

Collide-O-Scope Music is a new music ensemble with a focus on diverse and innovative media forms. Now in its Eighth Season, Collide-O-Scope Music has offered an eclectic mix of newly composed works and essential classics from the modern repertory in the context of immersive concert productions where fixed compositions give way to episodes of interactive improvisatory music in seamless sets of continuous music. A founding objective for the group has been emphasizing the role of emerging technologies, and the impact of the media itself, in the formation of new aesthetic environments. Thus, a focus is given to musical works featuring both physical/practical innovations, including extended instrumental techniques, microtonal composition, electronic sound and signal processing, and non-traditional notation, as well as conceptual extensions, including the application of innovative theoretical/mathematical models, indeterminacy and the use of chance operations, and analogues and models drawn from other fields. Composers represented include John Cage, David Lang, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Milton Babbitt, Pierre Boulez, Iannis Xenakis, Luigi Nono, Terry Riley, Alvin Lucier, Jason Eckardt, Edmund Campion, as well as an ever-growing number of composers who have written for the group including Stephen Gorbos, Yotam Haber, Nathan Davis, Spencer Topel, Jeff Snyder, Chris Arrell,James Romig, Aaron Brooks, Michael Klingbeil, Christopher Bailey, Elizabeth Adams, Lou Bunk, and many more. Collide-O-Scope Music has been presented in New York City at Issue Project Room, Roulette, Symphony Space, the cell, Tenri Cultural Institute, Spectrum, and Greenwich House.

José Menor - Solo Piano "Marathon-Recital"

A Recital of Premieres: The Complete Works by Hèctor Parra

From the artist:

This marathon-recital program is made entirely of premieres, presenting for the first time in the USA the complete solo piano works by Catalan composer based in Paris, Hèctor Parra. Based at the IRCAM, Parra is one of the most important composers in the European avant-garde scene, who I particularly admire and enjoy working with him for years. His music originated within the "new complexity" movement and has developed into a very personal style in the last cycle, "Cinq études d'art", a cycle finished this summer, in which each piece is inspired by a visual artist. As the exception of the program, only one of Parra's piano works, "Cos de Matèria", was premiered by myself in the USA, at Spectrum, in 2013. This is now the opening movement of "Cinq études d'art", premiered as such in Girona, Spain, on July 2016.

The program is completed with more premieres. I am comissioning UK composer, Sam Hayden, whose music is also related to the "new complexity" trend, to write a 5 to 7 pieces cycle, called "Becomings". An exciting project conceived as a "premiere in progress" that will start at Spectrum, with the world premiere of its first piece, and will continue in Madrid and London. Finally, as an interlude, I am very happy to present two pieces by myself, a set of miniatures called "Fragments for Clare" (in which the audience can decide the order of the fragments) and the work "New Crossroads", composed especially for the occasion.

PROGRAM

Sam Hayden (1968 - ): "Becomings (Das Werden)" (2016). First part. *World premiere

Hèctor Parra (1976 - ):

"Cinq études d'art" (2012-2016): "Cos de Matèria" (2012), "Carícies cap al Blanc" (2013), "Haus Ur / Office Baroque" (2014), "Cell (Arch of Hysteria)" (2016), "Una pregunta (a Jaume Plensa)" (2015).

INTERMISSION

José Menor (1977 - ):

"Fragments for Clare" (2016).

"New Crossroads" (2016).

*World premieres.

Hèctor Parra (1976 - ):

"Tres Peces per a Piano" (1999)

"Impromptu pour Equinox" (2010)

"Impromptu" (2005)

"Quatre Miniatures" (2007)

"La Dona d'Aigua" (2009)

BRIEF INTERMISSION

Hèctor Parra (1976 - ): "Sonata" (2010)

José Menor is an artist who defies labels. He is as much at home as "the great ambassador of Spanish music" (Melómano), or as a "revolutionary of his instrument" (Hèctor Parra), exploring the most innovative music of the avant-garde, including his own works. One of the most outstanding Spanish pianists of his generation, José has quickly established himself as a sought-after artist in the field of new music. His recording of the complete solo piano works of Joan Guinjoan was awarded four stars by the prestigious Fono Forum Magazine.

José Has performed very recently at Carnegie Hall commemorating Granados' 100th Anniversary, as part of a tour that has taken him to the "Meet in Beijing" Arts Festival and to the "Martha Argerich" Festival in Lugano. For more information, please visit www.josemenor.net.

Title Pending - Co-Hosted by Stuart Breczinski and Laura Weiner

Title Pending opens this fall season with two brand-new (and two other "like new") works for winds in a fun showcase of extra-musical inspirations.

On the program is Brad Balliett's new woodwind quintet inspired by "Henry IV, Part II", Laura Weiner 's songs inspired by biologist Rachel Carson, Eric Nathan's 2014 trio for oboe, horn, and piano inspired by ancient Roman architecture, and Isang Yun's woodwind quintet inspired by...awkward but soulful dancing. It should be a dense fun concert with a diverse assortment of voices.

Exactly what a Sunday evening needs.

Gabriel Zucker's Weighting, with Tyshawn Sorey, Adam O'Farrill, & Eric Trudel

Award-winning composer and pianist Gabriel Zucker presents the second-ever performance of Weighting, written for an all-star band featuring Tyshawn Sorey (drums), Adam O'Farrill (trumpet), and Eric Trudel (tenor saxophone). Written in 2014-2015 and premiered at Spectrum last summer, Weighting is inspired by a series of passages from Rachel Kushner's The Flamethowers and ranges the musical gamut from guided free improvisation to complex metric figuration and Messiaen-inspired harmony. The band will record the work for Zucker's third studio album in October. Samples from the premiere can be heard online here.

Gabriel Zucker is a pianist, composer, and multi-instrumentalist from New York. Classically trained in piano and composition, Zucker combines maximalist compositions with the progressive improvisation of New York's creative music scene. His music has received two ASCAP composition awards, and he has performed throughout New York at such venues as Carnegie Hall, Le Poisson Rouge, and the Jazz Gallery, as well as across the Northeast, Canada, and Europe. Recent/current collaborators include Tyshawn Sorey, Tony Malaby, Perry Robinson, Adam O'Farrill, Dre Hocevar, Eric Trudel, Billy Mintz, and the Sirius Quartet.

Violin, Viola & Video Virtuosity Part II

Presented by Karen Bentley Pollick

International new music violinist Karen Bentley Pollick returns to Spectrum with a diverse program fusing music and videos from Sweden, Lithuania, France, Lebanon, Israel and Alabama. The imaginative interaction of imagery and music will be wide ranging. The social consciousness of Ole Saxe's 'Užupis Constitution Song' lies in contrast to Brian Moon's lamentation 'Duetto con Bobik', featuring the vocals of Karen's beloved, yet deceased beagle merged with camerawork by her current hound dog on the cobblestones of Vilnius. Ethereal Baltic harmonies haunt Žibuokl? Martinaityt?'s 'Serenity Diptychs', as well as Loreta Narvilait?'s effervescent 'The Wave Follows the Bird's Flight' and Gediminas Gelgotas' wintry tribute to Anykš?iai in 'To the Skies'. Dominique de Williencourt's soulfully evocative 'Mont Ararat' simulates a duo of duduks on scordatura viola. Randall Woolf's thought provoking music is featured in the film 'Beirut is a House of Many Rooms'. Israeli spectral composer Ayal Adler contributes 'Contrasts in Time', an intense interaction of colors - both in sight and sound.
