Akóz Rózmann: "12 Stations / Tolv Stationer"

Thu, December 4, 2014 - 6:00pm

Experimental Intermedia: 224 Centre St, NYC

Originally commissioned as a 5-minute piece, over 20 years, "12 Stations" evolved into a challenging 6 1/2 hour epic; a deep, spiritual journey that is considered a central work of Rózmann’s oeuvre. Thematically the work draws on the Tibetan Wheel of Life, and reflects Rózmann's deep interest in Tibetan Buddhism.

Event

Artists-In-Residence 2014

Peter Evans

Sat, December 20, 2014 - 8:00pm

Peter Evans closes his 2014 residency with a solo trumpet performance. Improvisation is used as a method of pressurizing and slowly refining materials from concert to concert; a process of using the known as a catapult to the unknown that is a central focus of Evans' residency and work in general.

Lea Bertucci opens her ISSUE Residency with the premiere of "The Cepheid Variations I + II", a pair of new works for pre-recorded sound collage and strings. Born out of an interest in the timbral and acoustic possibilities of harmonics, the pieces combine extended techniques for cello and viola with concrete sound.
