"A Mess of Things": the world premiere of a fully staged work of hybrid music theater and experimental documentary sound art conceived, composed and performed by Adam Tinkle. The piece brings together recorded voices and video with live performance of text, song and instrumental soundscapes in an evening that explores the objects we keep, the things they remind us of, the way they fill our lives and often weigh us down. In particular, it focuses on the story of one man, an inventor with an improbably sized collection, and what happened to him when he was forced to leave the house where he kept it all for fifty years.

Last in a series of concerts staged this year to be performed on the first Monday of every month at noon. The six pieces on this concert capture a diverse approach to chamber music, from junk metal to pedal steel to more traditional chamber ensembles. Five of them are premieres from UCSD composers (all but Lotófagos by Austrian Beat Furrer). The idea was to have noontime music played at noon, for noon, and through noon. Noon is when the sun is highest. Noon is also when noon is immanent. At noon, noon whispers noontime music into your ears, it's saying: "How sweet that noon is here. Listen." In fact, it's noon right now.

Event Program (PDF)

James Gordon Williams performs a solo piano program of Improvisations from the Ontological Hinterlands (acoustic piano) and Your Ass Is In What You Sing (feedback piano). Gordon writes: "Feedback is insurgency through sound. It is the disruption/irruption of time and space. It is the sound altercation between creative practice and the musically, politically and spiritually hegemonic. I stand for anti-formalism because my ontology has given me no choice. When hegemonic structures are subverted space for imagination and creativity is maximized. Feedback is the feedback that comes from what objects live through/ have lived through… and so feedback is the sound histories and sound epistemologies that stretch out from the genealogy of those that strive from a location of an unacknowledged and caricatured subjectivity, to create new forms.

Event Program (PDF)

Albus/Ater II is the second incarnation of a concept program for solo classical guitar (Albus Ater I appeared in May 2006). The pieces are loosely grouped around not just the simple definition of these words (Latin: white/black), but the myriad of other concepts to which they may refer. Two newly composed pieces are featured on the program:  Matthew Burtner’s Citlatepetl Vertex (based on Colin’s December 2010 ascent of the highest volcano in Mexico, the Pico de Orizaba); and Christopher Adler’s Aeneas in the Underworld, Act I: The Caves of Cumae, a setting of the sixth book of Virgil’s Aeneid for guitar and narrator. Other works include Carmina obscura : A garland of 14th & 15th century polyphony  (arrangements by McAllister, Adler and Bryan Christian), Miguel Ordóñez’s 21 Grupos, and the Decameron Negro of Leo Brouwer.

Once Upon an Island: Matthew Lien with Chou Yi-chien, Huang Yin-zhong and Siki Safi. A resident of Canada's Yukon Territory, Lien has been composing, recording and producing music for most of his life. Singing traditional German and American folk songs as a child with his family, he graduated to the guitar and piano by the age of 10. With formal music lessons leaving him uninspired, he abandoned them after a few weeks and proceeded to teach himself piano and music theory, drawing inspiration and knowledge from friends and family. He has achieved phenomenal success in Southeast Asia, primarily in Taiwan and mainland China.

Wed @ 7 :"A sound, vast and summerlike..." kallisti ensemble

Event Program (PDF)

'A sound,  vast and summerlike...'   juxtaposes the music of two seminal figures of modern music:  Eric Satie and Morton Feldman,  presenting works for concert performance in an original music-theater production conceived by Susan Narucki and Aleck Karis.  

The cornerstone of the production is Eric Satie's masterwork, Socrate. Written in 1918, Socrate is considered to be one of the precursors of minimalism and a turning point toward modernity.  Surrounding this is chamber music of Morton Feldman;  a composer in whom we see the influence of Satie in its full mid-century flower. His delicate, pulsing works can be compared to the painting of Mark Rothko; multi-layered, with exquisite instrumental and vocal color.  Satie and Feldman's songs, at times humorous and ironic, at times serenely beautiful, complete the program. 

"A sound, vast and summerlike.."  presents the work of two visionaries, who yearned to create music that was spacious, open and timeless.   The cast  includes members of kallisti, (UCSD's vocal ensemble dedicated to modern vocal music directed by Susan Narucki), UCSD faculty members baritone Philip Larson and conductor Aleck Karis,  and the musicians of  Palimpsest.     

The fully staged production takes place in the intimate setting of the Black Box Theater of the magnificent Conrad Prebys Music Center on the UC San Diego campus.
