New York based Karl Larson, founding member of the Color Field Ensemble, will open the show with Tristan Perich’s Dual Synthesis, an entrancing 30-minute work for Harpsichord and 1-bit electronics named by Alex Ross of the New Yorker as one of 2012’s “notable new scores.”
The evening will then feature two sets by the percussion trio TIGUE, the latest project of long time collaborators Matt Evans, Amy Garapic and Carson Moody.
TIGUE’s first set of the evening will include a sneak peak at Robert Honstein’s new commission “An Index of Possibility,” a multi-movement odyssey for percussion trio to be premiered this spring, Tristan Perich’s “qsqsqsqsqqqqqqqqq” for three toy pianos and three channel 1-bit tones, and an original arrangement of Andy Akiho’s “Karakurenai (aka Rochester Song).” The night will close with three TIGUE originals; individual explorations of the unique instruments the members have grown to love.
