Steven Schick performs John Luther Adams

Friday, January 22nd, 2016 7:00 pm

Conrad Prebys Music Center Experimental Theater


Schick performs Adams' The Mathematics of Resonant Bodies, an eight-movement, 75-minute piece born of a 2001 visit by Schick with Adams at the composer's home in Alaska. Schick performed the piece in Manhattan in 2014. Of his rendering of "Shimmer," the third movement, the New York Times said that Schick "created a celestial, kaleidoscopic palette of sounds by playing on several triangles." In "Roar," another section, "a halo of sounds emerged in a vigorous crescendo from the tam-tam (a type of gong)." Schick's live performance intermingles with a variety of electronic sounds.
