Jennifer Bewerse, cello - Graduate Recital
Friday, February 17th, 2017
7:00 pm
Conrad Prebys Music Center Experimental Theater
Free

Jennifer Bewerse is joined by Southland Ensemble to present her final recital at UC San Diego featuring the chance poetry of Jackson Mac Low. Mac Low’s dedication to systems of composition – which included chance, indeterminacy, and simultaneous performance – allowed him to create works of extreme openness. His poems represent a moment in poetry where truths of authorship were called into question and the very boundaries of music and poetry were pulled taut.

Featuring:
Tree Movie
54th Light Poem: For Ian Tyson
The Five Young Turtle Asymmetries
Is That Wool Hat My Hat?
Numbered Asymmetries

“I myself think that if it is a connection and it does something, it’s some kind of cause but it’s different from the time-linear cause going from past to future. It’s across any present, between any two things coexisting. ... And I think that one thing that systematic chance does allow... is for something to happen on that synchronous plane.” - Jackson Mac Low

Conrad Prebys Music Center Recital Hall

"To be in exile to be displaced from one’s country of origin and upbringing to be an immigrant —the experience of over 185 million people in the world, on a conservative estimate—is a wrench perhaps comparable in impact to that of war, long-term hunger or imprisonment.

"For me to be in exile, to be an immigrant is like being 'NOISE' in musical context, Like being the 'STAIN' on the 'clean' wall.

"Instead of a person creatively carrying over meanings, across accepted borders of sense, a person is here bodily pushed over borders by forces beyond his or her control.

"In 'NOISE MUSIC' performances aural elements are sprinting toward each other from opposite far ends of the aural space and are colliding in a direct, violent impact. This sound of crashing aural elements is 'NOISE MUSIC.' While sound connotes nothing more than the sense-data of hearing, 'NOISE MUSIC,' from the Latin nausea, suggests an unpleasant disturbance, confusion, or interference baldly lacking any musical quality and that in sociological terms for me is 'EXILE.' The collision of the 'STAIN' of the 'NOISE' with the clean wall is becoming the sunrise of freedom and justice."

-from Exile as Noise & Stain - Noise & Stain as Exile - Dror Feiler

 

Dror Feiler was born in 1951 in Tel Aviv, Israel and has been living in Sweden since 1973. Feiler plays the soprillo, sopranino, soprano, alto, tenor and contrabass saxophones, as well as the B-flat clarinet, bassethorn, contrabass clarinet. He also operates computerized sound systems.

Feiler has performed and recorded with several groups and as a solo artist in Sweden, Russia, Yuguslavia, Serbia, Bosnia, Croatia, Great Britain, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Belarus, Ukraine, Lithuania, Latvia, Austria, Switzerland, France, Israel, Palestine, Holland, Hungary, Norway, Germany, France, Japan, Colombia, Mexico, U.S.A., Brazil and Colombia over the last 40 years.

Filer is the founder of the free music improvisation group Lokomotiv Konkret. He is also the founder and artistic leader of the Too Much Too Soon Orchestra.

They might play traditional Spanish-style classical guitars, but they’re not your standard guitar ensemble. Described as a “quartet with a difference” by the Irish Times, the Dublin Guitar Quartet is the first classical guitar quartet devoted entirely to new music. Since their formation, the quartet has worked to expand the genre’s limited repertoire by commissioning new works and adapting modern masterpieces. With the help of 8- and 11-string guitars, the quartet has created an original catalogue of arrangements by composers such as Philip Glass, Steve Reich, Arvo Pärt and György Ligeti. Expect a dynamic, entertaining and completely novel concert experience at their San Diego debut with ArtPower.

The quartet's program will include:

  • Aheym by Bryce Dessner

  • Saxophone Quartet by Philip Glass

  • Book of Leaves by Rachel Grimes

  • Gongan by William Kanengiser

Heavy Metal Bamboo: How archaic bamboo instruments became modern in Bandung, Indonesia

Henry Spiller

UC Davis

In 2009, nine people suffocated at a death metal concert featuring local metal bands in Bandung, Indonesia. In response, some Bandung-based metal musicians began to reconsider their wholesale adoption of global "heavy metal" values and musical style. In a quest to inject local Sundanese values of community and cooperation into their musical practice, they hit upon the idea of reviving archaic rural bamboo musical instruments— karinding (mouth-resonated lamelophone) and celempung (idiochord tube zither)—as a means to reconnect to their Sundanese past.

This lecture examines how Bandung musicians create localized, alternative modernities by putting old bamboo instruments to new uses. I introduce two case studies: Karinding Attack ("Karat"), a group of metal musicians who play their death-metal-inspired compositions on village bamboo instruments, and Galengan Sora Awi ("GSA"), a neighborhood-based group of musicians who play a variety of traditional Sundanese musical styles on bamboo instruments of their own invention. I explore how both groups have modified traditional bamboo musical instruments and styles to promote decidedly global modern values: the noisy timbres and diffuse pitches associated with distorted amplified guitars, the rejection by some countercultural groups of modern, sterile, mass-produced, manufactured goods in favor of do-it-yourself (DIY) technologies, the fostering of renewable resources, conservation, and the cleanup of urban environments, and the promotion by the Indonesian government of local and regional traditions.

Bamboo’s versatility—which in the past enabled Sundanese individuals to solve many pressing everyday problems—continues to empower them to face the challenges of modern life. Bamboo’s association with the rakyat—everyday people—and bamboo music’s association with Sundanese/Indonesian principle of gotong royong (mutual aid and cooperation) are further attractions for modern Indonesians eager to adapt local values to global contexts.

 

Henry Spiller is an ethnomusicologist whose research focuses on Sundanese music and dance from West Java, Indonesia. His books include Gamelan: The Traditional Sounds of Indonesia (ABC-CLIO, 2004) and Erotic Triangles: Sundanese Dance and Masculinity in West Java (Chicago, 2010). His most recent book, Javaphilia: American Love Affairs with Javanese Music and Dance (Hawaii, 2015), was awarded the Society for Ethnomusicology’s Bruno Nettl Prize in 2016. Spiller’s current project, based on fieldwork conducted in Bandung, Indonesia, with the support of a Fulbright Senior Scholar award, investigates music made with bamboo musical instruments. He earned his BA (music) from UC Santa Cruz, an MM (harp performance) from  Holy Names University, and the MA and PhD (ethnomusicology) from UC Berkeley. Currently he is professor of music at UC Davis, where he is the once and future department chair, teaches world music classes and graduate seminars, and directs the department's Sundanese gamelan ensemble.

8:00 pm
Mandeville Auditorium
An ArtPower presentation.
Tickets handled by
UCSD Box Office
Ticket information: 858-534-TIXS (8497)

ArtPower presents a performance by the Bereishit Dance Company.

Founded by choreographer Park Soon-Ho, Bereishit is a Seoul-based dance company that approaches the Korean traditional culture from a contemporary perspective. The company explores the issues of identity and transformation with a dance style that merges the control and full-body excitement of break dance with sleek artistry and urban cool.

With an all-male cast, Bereishit’s West Coast debut includes two works: Bow, an athletic duet inspired by the tradition of archery, explores the boundaries of sports and dance, while the intensely physical Balance and Imbalance features brilliant and fun interplay among five dancers, a pair of Korean traditional drummers and one traditional pansori singer.

“The street style in dress and movement disguises finely honed skill in balancing bodies at extraordinary angles and in extraordinary configurations.”—Critical Dance

Verdi composed his magnificent Requiem in 1874, when he was in his sixties and thought that he had retired. Requiem was composed nearly by accident: Verdi proposed that a setting of the great text should be made by a group of composers, but when the others dropped out, he wrote the whole thing himself. Millions of music lovers have been grateful ever since for Verdi’s return from retirement. The La Jolla Symphony and Chorus will be joined in this production by guest choruses and operatic soloists for the concert event of the season.

Wednesdays@7 presents On Structure, the collaborative project of Jessie Marino and Natacha Diels.

On Structure is a sound-centric performance duo. The 
New York based ensemble uses improvised and composed
Sounds {and the fluctuation of these sounds} to brew 
Transferable art pieces which may 
Ravage the realms of the performer, audience or space itself. 
Uncovering the hidden motions of sound, freeing 
Compositions from the fluorescence of the concert expectation. 
Topsy-turvy. 
Use of lasers, wigs, electronics, cellosandflutes; 
Repurposing life experiences for music glitches and muscle twitches. 
Eclipse boundaries of the stage.

ArtPower presents a performance by the Ariel Quartet

Characterized by their youth, brilliant playing and soulful interpretations, the Ariel Quartet has quickly earned a glowing international reputation. Formed in Israel when the members were young students 16 years ago, the quartet was recently awarded the prestigious Cleveland Quartet Award. They currently serve as the faculty quartet-in-residence at the University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music, where they direct the chamber music program and perform their own annual series of concerts—a remarkable achievement for an ensemble so young. This award-winning quartet has performed widely in North America, Europe and Israel and will be making their San Diego debut at ArtPower.

The quartet's program will include:

  • Quartet in A Major, Op. 18, No. 5 by Ludwig van Beethoven

  • New Commission by Mahammed Fairouz

  • Quartet in A Major, Op. 41, No. 3 by Robert Schumann

As a result of his academic and pianistic achievements, he received scholarships from the Hong Kong Government, Au Bak Ling Charity Trust, and the Temple University.

An ArtPower presentation.
Tickets handled by
UCSD Box Office
Ticket information: 858-534-TIXS (8497)

ArtPower presents a performance by the St. Lawrence String Quartet.

Back by popular demand, the “witty, buoyant, and widely attentive” (The Gazette, Montreal) St. Lawrence String Quartet has developed an undisputed reputation as a world-class chamber ensemble. Serving as ensemble-in-residence at Stanford University since 1998, the quartet continues to build their reputation for imaginative and spontaneous music making through an energetic commitment to the established quartet literature, as well as the championing of new works by composers like John Adams, Osvaldo Golijov, Ezequiel Viñao and Jonathan Berger.

The quartet's program will include:

  • Second Quartet by John Adams

  • String Quartet No. 16 in F Major, Op. 135 by Ludwig van Beethoven

  • String Quartet No. 1, Op. 112 by Camille Saint-Saëns

For ticket information call 858-534-4637 or go to lajollasymphony.com

Guest composer Michael Gerdes conducts a performance of:

  • Concerto for Flute by Carl Nielsen

  • Biennale Snapshots by Vivian Fung (U.S. premiere)

  • Pictures at an Exhibition by Modest Mussorgsky

Featuring guest flutist Carlos Aguilar (2015 Young Artists Winner).

Continuing the La Jolla Symphony and Chorus' season theme of music created during the midpoint of composers' careers, guest composer Michael Gerdes will lead the perennial favorite Pictures at an Exhibition, composed when Modest Mussorgsky was 35 years old. That should have been the midpoint of a great career, but–tragically–Mussorgsky was dead only seven years later. The La Jolla Symphony and Chorus Young Artists first place winner Carlos Aguilar will perform Carl Nielsen’s Flute Concerto, a very playful (and very funny) piece of music. Vivian Fung offers her own set of “pictures” in a colorful musical response to works of public art from the 2014-16 Vancouver Art Biennale.

ArtPower presents a performance by the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company.

The Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company was born out of an 11-year collaboration between Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane, who passed away in 1988. During this time, the two dancers redefined the duet form and foreshadowed issues of identity, form and social commentary that would change the face of American dance. The Company has performed worldwide in over 200 cities in 40 countries on every major continent and is recognized as one of the most innovative and powerful forces in the dance-theater world.

The Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company returns to UC San Diego with Play and Play: An Evening of Movement and Dance, which includes two works—D-Man in the Waters and Story/. Both will be accompanied by live music.
