Event Program (PDF)

As musical access evolves alongside technology and ever-shifting culture, the performing artist is confronted with a question:  is live performance essential? Tonight’s concert offers five pieces and their various answers to this question.

Burn Again with a Low Blue Flame - Annie Gosfield
Vessel - Caroline Miller
Durations 2 - Morton Feldman
The New Right of Spring - Pauline Oliveros
Charles Curtis - Alvin Lucier

Focusing on the very physical nature of sound and its expression in space, the full realizations of these works are only available in the moments they are exchanged between the performer and audience.  A case for live performance is made not with the risk of failure or presentation of the performer as hero, but with compositional ideas that live fully only within the moment of performance.
