Works by William Engelen and Aki Onda

Fri, November 22, 2013 - 8:00pm

ISSUE and The Drawing Center present works by artists William Engelen and Aki Onda. Celebrated percussion ensemble Talujon perform Engelen’s recent work "Falten", a hybrid of score and sculpture. Percussionist Eli Keszler and the Ashcan Orchestra’s Pat Spadine perform Aki Onda’s "Damaged".

Recorded live in June 2013, percussionist Eli Keszler and saxophonist Ashley Paul perform a duo as part of the PAN_ACT festival. Keszler's bowed crotales and cymbals resonate within Paul's altissimo sustains and drastic pitch bends. The split tone combinations from these instruments is surprising and overwhelming, creating continuously shifting, multi-layered harmonics and intense inner ear sound.
