Alan Tormey - Second Commentary on the Natures of Realism (2014)
Pittsburgh-based Eclectic Laboratory Chamber Orchestra produces concerts and multimedia performances that are informed by the American experimental tradition and that actively cross-pollinate between popular and avant-garde musical styles. For this festival, they will be presenting Alan Tormey's A Second Mediation on the Natures of Realism, for three analog electronic instruments. This work connects the contemporary sonic realism of Acoustic Ecology and Soundscape Studies to the international and classically-inspired musical grammar that was common to both Soviet Realism and American Social Realists such as Aaron Copland or Roy Harris.
Paul Schuette- Puzzle Pieces (2014)Molly Joyce- Amplify (2014)
The Stockhausen Response Project commissioned innovative pieces for solo piano by asking composers to respond to one historic piece: Mikrophonie by Karlheinz Stockhausen. Pianist Brianna Matzke will present two selections from the project (by Paul Schuette and Molly Joyce) that echo Stockhausen's creativity, reimagining the sound world of the piano by integrating electronics.


David Clay Mettens - Passacaglia (2016)Vicente Hansen Atria - mother flame light blue mother flake dark blue chrysoprase brilliant fire green (2017)

Local saxophonist Phil Pierick and Rochester-based pianist Kurt Galván perform two new works exploring ideas of resonance, polyrhythmic grooves, and microtonality by composers David Clay Mettens (Chicago) and Vicente Hansen Atria (NYC).

Jonn Sokol - Above (2018)free improvisation

The Syndicate for the New Arts is a Cleveland-based contemporary music ensemble and presenting organization that focuses on championing local composers and offering brand new musical experiences from touring ensembles at St. John's Ohio City. The ensemble is thrilled to be working with Cleveland composer Jonn Sokol once again.

As a forward thinking chamber ensemble with diverse musical interests, The Syndicate will also be improvising.
