These two concerts will feature the Bay Area’s virtuoso guitar and percussion duo The Living Earth Show performing works for invented instruments created by composer & instrument inventor Dennis Aman. Composer Aman began this work during his 2016 DEAR residency at the Ensemble’s studio, collaborating closely with the Living Earth Show, for whom he has created the instruments as well as the featured work, 24 Preludes and Fugues. This piece will be performed on Aman’s newly invented instruments that are uniquely capable of exploring all equal divisions of the octave, from a unison to 24 equal divisions.
The second half of the program presents the world premiere of Ned Rothenberg’s Beyond C, a major collaboration with Paul Dresher that features Ensemble-percussionist Joel Davel conducting an expanded version of the Electro-Acoustic Band. Rothenberg’s new work, a concerto for improvising soloist and large ensemble, is inspired by Terry Riley’s seminal work In C, from 1964.
