Cage organized the first MusiCircus in 1967 inviting various musicians and ensembles to perform together.

Guest composers/artists will include Ryan Smith, Jeff Snyder, Chris Woltmann, Carolyn Lord, Theresa Salomon, Allen Otte, Terry Pender, Lee Jeffryes, John Hadfield, and the evening will feature Ben Patterson’s Paper Pieces and Turkish traditional music with Bora Yasar and Sukunet’s Alp Disiacik and Phaedon Sinis.groundwave

Founded in 1999, groundwave is dedicated to the performance of new music and masterworks of the American avant-garde tradition. Recent performances organized by Groundwave have focused on solo piano works, electro-acoustic music, and dance-music collaboration. groundwave members have presented their work throughout the U.S. at venues such as the Tanglewood Festival, Williamsburg Arts Nexus, Music2003 Festival (Cincinnati), The Crow Collection (Dallas), and The Construction Company.

MUSIC OF CHRIS WOLTMANN

The program will consist of two works: Guitars 3 (2002), for two electric guitars, and String Quartet (2003), for violin, two electric guitars, and cello. Performing the program are Theresa Salomon, violin, Chris Woltmann and Karl Wenninger, electric guitars, and Loren Dempster, cello.
Music

About the works:

In Guitars 3, acoustic beating effects conflict with and play off of a regular metric pulse as the guitars go in and out of tune, and specifically, in and out of unison with each other.

String Quartet employs violin and cello and two (mostly) e-bowed guitars which replace, in tessitura but not in timbre, the second violin and viola of the classical string quartet (the e-bow is somewhat less subtle than an acoustic bow). Drones and glissandi combined with delay effects produce walls of sound, and a long drawn out glissando stands in for melody. The quartet is organized into four movements which bear a passing resemblance to 1) sonata allegro, 2) theme and variations, 3) scherzo and 4) finale. The movements are played back-to-back, with no pause.

CHRIS WOLTMANN’s music has been performed by the Talujon Percussion Ensemble, the Manhattan Brass Quintet, the Magic Circle Chamber Opera, and others in this country and by the Nieuwe Oogst Contemporary Music Ensemble in Europe. He has collaborated with a number of choreographers including Olga Tragant, Jeffrey Bauer and Elke Rindfleisch. He performs on electric guitar with his own ensemble Chris Woltmann and Company. A graduate of Manhattan School of Music, his teachers include Eric Lundborg, Giampaolo Bracali, Ronald Caltabiano and Harold Farberman.

composer DAN JOSEPH will lead his chamber ensemble in a program of new and recent works which explore unique instrumental combinations, harmonically rich scoring, and a hyper-kinetic, Balkanesque approach to rhythm. Built around his pulsing hammer dulcimer patterns, the ensemble includes Tom Chiu (violin), Loren Dempster (cello), Marija Ilic (harpsichord), Michael Lowenstern (clarinet), and Danny Tunick (percussion). This concert will be in "A-B-A" form: after the second part of the concert, the first part will be repeated. The audience can enter at 8 pm or 8:45 pm. A discussion with the composer will follow.
