Brightwork New Music plays "Scorpio" on "Diffusion / Compression" in Pomona
Brightwork kicks off the 2016/17 season with a concert exploring the extremes of musical expression. Elise Roy's Rarefaction, a Brightwork commission, masterfully uses silence and extended techniques to convey a sense of diffusion, of lessening. In stark contrast, Isaac Schankler's Sever, also a Brightwork commission, turns Sarah Palin’s incoherent rants into musical material, pushing the audience to the very edge of their seats.
The program also features a WORLD PREMIERE work by Harvey Mudd College’s own Bill Alves, titled He Watches the Clouds Pass the Window, plus the music of California icon Lou Harrison. Rounding out the concert are three pieces on the Zodiac: Adam Borecki’s Scorpio, Vera Ivanova’s Sagittarius, and Vicki Ray’s Perpendicular Twins.
Rarefaction - Elise Roy
Ariadne - Lou Harrison
Three Zodiac pieces - Adam Borecki, Vera Ivanova, Vicki Ray
He Watches the Clouds Pass the Window - Bill Alves WORLD PREMIERE
