On Monday April 8 at 7:30 PM at Symphony Space, loadbang and pianist Kathleen Supove appear as part of the Cutting Edge Concerts series. There’s musical exploration on the menu, but also a bit of jocularity. Featured pieces include Victoria Bond’s work The Page Turner, in which Supove will take on the role of an errant page turner who wreaks havoc on a performance. loadbang premieres Hannah Lash’s
Eight Songs for a Stone Prince, with texts selected from drunken phone calls by everybody’s favorite royal bad boy, Prince Harry. Doug Gibson’s Fanfare for the Common Audience is another work with an interesting text source, in this case a letter to the New York Philharmonic from an irate audience member who is tired of them programming infernal “modern music” (perish the thought!). The concert also includes works by Reiko Fueting, Andy Akiho, and Alexandre Lunsqui. (Ticket info here).
