Jenny Black - Stand Still Here (2012)Jonghee Kang- The Ocean Was Still (2013)
This program presents two subjects that would be ubiquitous in the 19th century, but with a distinctly contemporary vernacular. “The Ocean was Still” presents the sea without 19th century clichés and “Stand Still Here” is a meditation of one of modernist literature’s most important works, To the Lighthouse. Pittsburgh-based pianist James W. Iman has distinguished himself as a specialist in music of the 20th and 21st centuries and frequently performs music of the Second Viennese, Darmstadt, and New York Schools.
Jacob Sachs-Mishalanie - 9 Rhymes (2017)
Canadian saxophonist Justin Massey is a contemporary artist currently based out of Morgantown, West Virginia. 9 Rhymes is the second in a series of pieces exploring the differences in our interpretation of meaning, expression, and genuineness in acoustic and electronic sounds. By using various combinations of acoustic, amplified, pre-recorded, and synthesized sounds, the piece questions what characteristics make these sounds feel real or artificial. Live and electronic sounds trade voices back and forth, blurring the perception of each individual sound’s source and cause. The performer must precisely follow the fixed electronics, emphasizing their virtuosity but calling into question their autonomy in this typical relationship between people and technology.
Elizabeth A. Baker - Locomotion (2017), Command Voices (2017)
In her program, Elizabeth A. Baker seeks to destroy the traditional construct of hierarchical authority in music making by restructuring the dialogue between artist and instrument; where the performer plays a reactive role rather than an active role. Interactive electronics such as vibrating objects in a piano, and wireless MIDI controllers that turn the body into a synthesizer are used to rewrite the sonic narrative between objects, in what becomes an immersive experience for all involved. Celebrated for her “terrifying dynamic range,” cleanliness of sound, as well as unique sensitivity and ability to sculpt her performance for the acoustics of a space, Elizabeth A. Baker is a dramatic performer with an honest, near psychic connection to music, which resounds with audiences of all ages and musical backgrounds.
