Andrew Lafkas: Untitled
This new piece was composed specifically for this group of musicians to perform at Eyebeam. Like other ensemble works I organize this piece uses predetermined elements to facilitate group intuition. Through the rehearsal process I have started feeling these written elements functioning more and more as possibility generators illustrating the ability of parameters to both limit and expand simultaneously.
Leif Sundstrom – cymbal
Rick Brown – cymbal
Patrick Holmes – clarinet
Gill Arno – microphone/recording device
CT-SWaM (Contemporary Temporary Sound Works And Music) is Eyebeam’s late night concert series curated by Eyebeam Alumni Daniel Neumann, happening intermittently in Eyebeam’s Main Space. The series focuses on contemporary sound experiments, electro-acoustic multi-channel performance, social-sonic relations, improvisation, lowercase artistic presence, and topology – study of place/space with a spatial concept that goes beyond linear, geometrical understandings of space.
