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.

Help BOMB ring in the new year with a benefit for artists and writers. Hosted by ISSUE and curated by David Grubbs, the evening features dance by Jen Rosenblit, poetry by Ariana Reines, and music by 75 Dollar Bill. Enjoy free drinks and copies of BOMB Issue 130. Donate $25 to BOMB’s Kickstarter campaign for entry.
