12:00 pm
Conrad Prebys Music Center Experimental Theater
Free

Changing Tides: A Telematic Translocational Concert Series is a dynamic musical collaboration among world-renowned improvisers that will bring attention to the powerful role of intercultural collaboration in addressing global environmental concerns. 

Telematic music is live performance via the Internet by musicians in different geographic locations. This year-long project will feature a core ensemble in San Diego, CA performing three concerts, each a month apart. For each concert, a different ensemble in a remote location will perform live with the California musicians via high-bandwidth, Internet2 networks. Culminating many years of immersion in telematics and jazz-inspired traditions, this project will set a new artistic precedent by establishing innovative connections among collective, improvisatory performance practices, cutting-edge internet technologies, and our shared dependence on the environment.

Distinguished Lecture Series: Alex Weheliye
Tuesday, February 16th, 2016
4:00 pm
Conrad Prebys Music Center Experimental Theater

A free lecture by Alexander Weheliye, Professor of African American Studies, Director of Graduate Studies, Northwestern University, where he teaches black literature and culture, critical theory, social technologies, and popular culture. He is the author of Phonographies: Grooves in Sonic Afro-Modernity (Duke University Press, 2005), which was awarded The Modern Language Association's William Sanders Scarborough Prize for Outstanding Scholarly Study of Black American Literature or Culture and Habeas Viscus: Racializing Assemblages, Biopolitics, and Black Feminist Theories of the Human (2014, Duke UP).

Currently, Weheliye is working on two projects. The first, Modernity Hesitant: The Civilizational Diagnostics of W.E.B. Du Bois and Walter Benjamin, tracks the different ways in which these thinkers imagine the marginal as central to the workings of modern civilization. The second, Feenin: R&B’s Technologies of Humanity, offers a critical history of the intimate relationship between R&B music and technology since the late 1970’s.

Ticket information: 858-534-8497

The Harlem Quartet, praised for its “panache” by the New York Times, is “bringing a new attitude to classical music, one that is fresh, bracing, and intelligent,” (Cincinnati Enquirer). Passionate about advancing diversity in classical music, the quartet has been engaging young audiences through the discovery of repertoire that includes works by minority composers. Since its debut in 2006 at Carnegie Hall, the New York–based ensemble has performed throughout the U.S. and worldwide (including at The White House for President Obama). The quartet completed the Professional String Quartet Residency Program at New England Conservatory in 2013, and the string quartet exchange program in Paris, working extensively with violinist Günter Pichler. The Harlem Quartet has collaborated with such distinguished performers as Itzhak Perlman, Ida Kavafian, Carter Brey, Anthony McGill, and Paquito D’Rivera. Their San Diego debut will be full of the vitality and flair the ensemble has become known for.

Fresh off a sabbatical that took him to Reykjavik, Berlin, Brisbane and Melbourne, ace clarinetist Anthony Burr of the music faculty performs a program centered on Morton Feldman's Clarinet and String Quartet---which he recently released on a CD. He will be joined by violinists Erik Carlson and Keir GoGwilt, violist Caterina Longhi and cellist Charles Curtis. Curtis performed on the recording. The concert program also includes Aldo Clementi's Impromptu for Clarinet and String Quartet, which, like the Feldman, is a late work of the composer that reflects nineteenth century chamber music in an inscrutable and mysterious way.

One of the top saxophonists to come out of Chicago's AACM movement of the mid-'60s, Roscoe Mitchell is a particularly strong and consistently adventurous improviser long associated with the Art Ensemble of Chicago. After getting out of the military, Mitchell led a hard bop sextet in Chicago (1961) which gradually became much freer.
 
He was a member of Muhal Richard Abrams's Experimental Band and a founding member of the AACM in 1965. Mitchell's monumental Sound album (1966) introduced a new way of freely improvising, utilizing silence as well as high energy and "little instruments" as well as conventional horns. Lester Bowie and Malachi Favors were on that date and Mitchell's 1967 follow-up Old/Quartet.
 
With the addition of Joseph Jarman and Philip Wilson (who was later succeeded by Famoudou Don Moye), the Art Ensemble of Chicago was born. The colorful unit was one of the most popular groups in the jazz avant-garde and Mitchell was an integral part of the band. Roscoe Mitchell (who, in addition to his main horns, plays clarinet, flute, piccolo, oboe, baritone and bass saxophones) also was involved in individual projects through the years and has recorded as a leader for Delmark, Nessa, Sackville, Moers Music, 1750 Arch, Black Saint, Cecma and Silkheart in settings ranging from large ensembles to unaccompanied solo concerts. -- Scott Yanow, All-Music Guide (source)

Praised for its breathtaking performances, flawless technique, and visionary interpretations, the quartet won second prize—and three additional special prizes—at the Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition at Wigmore Hall in April 2012. The quartet also has received top prizes at the Paolo Borciani Competition, the International Chamber Music Competition in Weiden, and the Max Reger International Chamber Music Competition. Formed by four of Europe’s most celebrated young string players in 2007, the Meccore performs extensively throughout the continent. Since 2009 the Meccore has worked closely with the Artemis Quartet at the Berlin University of the Arts. As postgraduates at the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music in Warsaw, the quartet worked with Alfred Brendel on the interpretation of Beethoven’s music. Brendel raved, “the Meccore String Quartet has impressed me as an outstanding young ensemble.” ArtPower is thrilled to welcome the quartet back in what is certain to be a brilliant performance!

Ekphrasis
Friday, April 1st, 2016
7:00 pm
Conrad Prebys Music Center Experimental Theater

Ekphrasis

In this recital-recitation, the theme of ekphrasis will be explored: not just ekphrasis as the representation of one art medium by another, but ekphrasis as affecting the relations between observed object (what is represented) and observing subject (what represents). Through explorations and performances of the music of J.S. Bach, György Kurtág, and Felipe Rossi in collaboration with Ryan Done, the naturalized mediums of composition and performance will be worked through in order to separate media from message. The smoothed over relations of value and exchange between performance and composition, performance and listening, performance and critical analysis, will be brought into question in a back-and-forth between discourse (as speaking subject) and performance (as observed object). Ultimately, the ekphrastic encounter mirrors the complexities and ambivalences of the self’s relation to the other.

Other works to be worked through include Einar Torfi Einarsson’s “de-contextualized” scores and original poems of the ekphrastic variety.

For John Cage by Morton Feldman 

Erik Carlson, violin and Aleck Karis, piano

Morton Feldman's For John Cage, written in the final phase of his career, is, typically for this period, a long work, almost 70 minutes. It is atypical, however, when one considers on how few occasions he actually wrote for this particular pairing of instruments: In 1951 there were "Extensions 1" and "Projections IV"; in 1963, he produced "Vertical Thoughts"; and again in 1978 he composed "Spring of Chosroes." The reasons are varied, but the one constant that runs through these works is howFeldman's palette of sonances, timbres, and textures could be achieved more forcefully by using these two instruments in his quest for "stasis." This term refers in Feldman's vocabulary to the effect achieved by the visual art of Mark Rothko and Philip Guston. In For John CageFeldman sets the piece in three movements where a minimum of notes are written in patters, played in varying time signatures, over and again, in slightly altered combinations of chords and tones. They are consistently modified to vary textural, polytonal, and even perceptual degrees, but never to the point of any linear modulation or scheme. For John Cage may repeat each sequence of notes -- in limited range -- and repeat them asymmetrically or symmetrically, this distinction doesn't matter to Feldman, who felt that if he could just achieve "stasis" within his music, the question would forever be in his words "held in abeyance." These patterned sections proceed from one another without reorganization or discernable system. But then, this work, as in all of Feldman's middle and late pieces, was about the relationships between note and silence and instruments and tones. For John Cage, meant to be played by both performers and listened to at barely audible volume, established enough displacement to achieve a kind of stasis in sound and in its relationship to the greater stasis: silence. Despite the seemingly endless academic theorizing he involved in his work, Feldman's music, and it's concern with gentleness, stillness, is music of great, if subtly expressed, emotion. Inspired by one of his longest personal and professional relationships, For John Cage is perhaps his most haunting and beautifully wrought for all of its alien construction and perceptual ambiguity. Indeed, it appears as if Feldman were, at the end of his life, attempting to free music from the only thing that weighted it to earth: itself.  (source)

Changing Tides: A Telematic Translocational Concert Series is a dynamic musical collaboration among world-renowned improvisers that will bring attention to the powerful role of intercultural collaboration in addressing global environmental concerns. 

Telematic music is live performance via the Internet by musicians in different geographic locations. This year-long project will feature a core ensemble in San Diego, CA performing three concerts, each a month apart. For each concert, a different ensemble in a remote location will perform live with the California musicians via high-bandwidth, Internet2 networks. Culminating many years of immersion in telematics and jazz-inspired traditions, this project will set a new artistic precedent by establishing innovative connections among collective, improvisatory performance practices, cutting-edge internet technologies, and our shared dependence on the environment.

WEDNESDAY @ 7 Presents: The FORMOSA QUARTET

The members of the Formosa Quartet – Jasmine Lin, Wayne Lee, Che-Yen Chen, and Ru-Pei Yeh – have established themselves as leading solo, chamber, and orchestral musicians. Winners of the First Prize and the Amadeus Prize at the London International String Quartet Competition in 2006, the FORMOSA QUARTET is “one of the very best quartets of their generation” (David Soyer, cellist of the Guarneri Quartet). Its debut recording on the EMI label was hailed as “spellbinding” (Strad Magazine) and “remarkably fine” (Gramophone), and the quartet has given critically acclaimed performances at the Ravinia Festival, the Caramoor Festival, the Library of Congress, the Da Camera Society of Los Angeles, the Chicago Cultural Center, the Walter Reade Theater at Lincoln Center, Rice University, San Francisco State University, and Wigmore Hall in London. Formed in 2002 when the four founding members came together for a concert tour of Taiwan, the Formosa Quartet is deeply committed to championing Taiwanese music and promoting the arts in the land of its heritage.

In the 2015-2016 season, the Formosa Quartet continues a two-year residency with Art of Élan, a San Diego arts-presenting organization. As ensemble-in-residence, the Quartet is working with UCSD professor of composition Lei Liang to create a new piece based on music indigenous to the aboriginal tribes of Taiwan. The culmination of the two-year project will be the premiere performance of the commission in Spring 2016 and a new disc of music inspired by Hungarian and Taiwanese folk traditions.

In its relatively brief existence, the Formosa Quartet’s active commissioning has contributed significantly to the 21st century’s string quartet literature. They premiered Taiwanese-American composer Shih-Hui Chen’sReturning Souls: Four Pieces on Three Formosan Amis Legends in 2014, and the Quartet’s recording of its first commission from Ms. Chen, Fantasia on the Theme of Plum Blossom, was released on the New World Records label in 2013. Other pieces recently written for the Quartet include three pieces by Dana Wilson — Hungarian Folk Songs, The night of h’s, and Apart — Wei-Chieh Lin’s Pasibutbut, and Thomas Oboe Lee’s Piano Quintet and Jasmine Variations.

Jürg Frey was born in 1953 in Aarau, Switzerland. Following his musical education at the Concervatoire de Musique de Genève, he turned to a career as a clarinetist, but his activities as composer soon came to the foreground. Frey developed his own language as a composer and sound artist with the creation of wide, quiet sound spaces. His work is marked by an elementary non-extravagence of sound, a sensibilty for the qualities of the material, and precision of compositional approach. His compositions sometimes bypass instrumentation and duration altogether and touch on aspects of sound art. He has worked with compositional series, as well as with language and text. Some of these activities appear in small editions or as artist's books as individual items and small editions (Edition Howeg, Zurich; weiss kunstbewegung, Berlin; complice, Berlin). His music and recordings are published by Edition Wandelweiser. Frey has been invited to workshops as visiting composer and for composer portraits at the Universität der Künste Berlin, the Universität Dortmund and several times at Northwestern University and CalArts. Some of the other places his work has developed are the concerts at the Kunstraum Düsseldorf, the Wandelweiser-in-Residence-Veranstaltungen in Vienna, the Ny music concerts in Boras (Sweden), the cooperation with Cologne pianist John McAlpine, the Bozzini Quartet (Montréal), QO-2 (Bruxelles), Die Maulwerker, incidental music, as well as the regular stays in Berlin (where during the last years many of his compositions were premiered). Frey is a member of the Wandelweiser Komponisten Ensemble which has presented concerts for more than 15 years in Europe, North America and Japan. Frey also organizes the concert series moments musicaux aarau as a forum for contemporary music.

Hindemith’s moving setting of Walt Whitman’s elegy for Abraham Lincoln, When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom’d: a Requiem for those we love, is considered by many to be his finest work; with chorus, mezzo-soprano, and baritone.
