David Rosenboom: 'Zones of Influence' at REDCAT

November 1, 2014
Saturday, November 1, 2014 - 8:30pm

REDCAT/MUSIC: “David Rosenboom is one of America's most underappreciated composers.” — Los Angeles Times

[William Winant is] “one of the best avant-garde percussionists working today” — Los Angeles Times

First written 30 years ago, David Rosenboom’s Zones of Influence is a landmark concert-length work for percussion soloist, live computer-generated electronics, and auxiliary keyboard and glissando instruments. At the time a breakthrough in linking virtuoso electroacoustic performance with interactive compositional algorithms, Zones is now fully realized—thanks to new a software instrument called the Touché II that allows the dynamic dimensionality of the music to take full mind-bending, cosmological shape. Rosenboom wrote the five-part epic expressly for superstar percussionist William Winant, who returns to perform on five live-processed percussion setups. He is joined by the composer on the Touché II, piano and violin, while Jinku Kim provides an immersive video environment for the concert. Rosenboom, one of the foremost voices in American composition since the late 1960s, released new double-CD recording of Zones of Influence on the Pogus Productions label this summer.

Performed by William Winant and David Rosenboom.

There will be a reception for Mr. Powell and the other performing artists at the recital's conclusion.

Intimate, violent, meditative, whimsical, languorous, and occasionally full of abject terror, this program is comprised of works spanning the last century, including premieres of new works by Los Angeles composer Nicholas Deyoe and himself. The program also features works by Frederic Rzewski, Salvatore Sciarrino, Olivier Messiaen, Aleksandr Skryabin, and Francis Poulenc.

The Herb Alpert School of Music at CalArts Visiting Artist: Gloria Coates

November 12, 2014
Wednesday, November 12, 2014 - 6:00pm - 8:00pm

CalArts, B318

MUSIC: Born in Wisconsin, Gloria Coates began composing and experimenting on her own with overtones and clusters at an early age. Her studies took her from Chicago’s Goodman Theater, and De Paul University, to Louisiana, to Salzburg’s Mozarteum, New York’s Cooper Union Art School, and Columbia University for postgraduate studies in musical composition.

During her college years she was active not only as a composer, but also as an Equity actress, writer, critic and director, working in the arts to support herself while she studied. However, her greatest love was music, and it was composition that she felt was her deepest means of expression and which finally became her dedication.

While maintaining a residence in the United States, Gloria Coates has lived in Europe since 1970 where she has promoted American music both in organizing a German-American Music Series (1971–1984), writing musicological articles, and producing broadcasts for the radio stations of Munich, Cologne, and Bremen.

Gloria Coates’s breakthrough came with the 1978 première of a work composed in 1973, Music on Open Strings, at the Warsaw Autumn Festival; a work for string orchestra in which the scordatura strings retune while playing. It proved to be the most discussed work at the festival and throughout the European press. In 1986 Music on Open Strings was a finalist for the KIRA Koussevitzsky International Award along with Philip Glass’s Satagraha, Berio’s Sinfonia and Steve Reich’s Desert Music.

She was a finalist for the International Classical Music Award in 2010. She has written 16 symphonies and other orchestral pieces, ten string quartets, chamber music, numerous songs, solo pieces, electronic music, and music for the theatre. Stolen Identity will be premiered on November 13, 2014 at REDCAT.

REDCAT: “Distinctive and darkly beautiful chamber music” – San Francisco Chronicle

World and U.S. Premieres

A prodigious composer of orchestral and chamber works since the 1960s, Gloria Coates is acclaimed for uncanny music that is part microtonal-expressionist, part postminimalist—at once turbulent and serene. This rare California showcase of the Munich-based composer’s distinctive oeuvre features Symphony No. 10 (Drones of Druids on Celtic Ruins) for large brass ensemble and percussion; the world premiere of the chamber opera Stolen Identity; and Night Music, for alto saxophone, harp and gongs.

The program is performed by top instrumentalists and singers coming out of the CalArts community; special guests include tenor Timur Bekbosunov, soprano Carmina Escobar, saxophonist Ulrich Krieger, and the Isaura String Quartet.

CalArts, B305, The Wild Beast and Roy O. Disney Concert Hall

MUSIC: Jaap Blonk (born 1953, Woerden) is a Dutch avant-garde composer and performance artist. Blonk is primarily self-taught both as a sound artist and as a visual/stage performer.

He studied physics, mathematics, and musicology for a time, but did not complete his studies. One of his early influences was Kurt Schwitters, whose Ursonate he first heard in 1979; he memorized the entire work, and it became one of the cornerstones of his repertory; he has recited portions of the piece hundreds of times in various public places.

His compositions and performances are examples of sound poetry, making use of words and phonetic snippets as well as clicks, hisses, and other vocal manipulations. He works as a solo performer, in collaboration with avant-garde musicians such as John Tchicai, Tristan Honsiger, and Mats Gustafsson, and with his own ensembles Splinks and BRAAXTAAL. His live performances involve humor and improvisation, and are occasionally received poorly by audiences, as when he was booked as an opener for punk rock band The Stranglers early in the 1980s.
