PK Harris/Topel Duo: /SHÄ’kÔn/

December 11, 2018 @ 7:30 pm

Program:
EDGE (30:00)
Is there a discernible boundary between tone and noise? Between chaos and order? Combining amplified violin played by Pauline Kim Harris and Syrinx, a new acoustic synthesizer invented and played by Spencer Topel, the duo explores these concepts in a continuous improvised work with the source material consisting of simple tones acoustically modulated, distorted, and filtered through the instruments themselves.
 
FOUR AUDIBLE EXPERIENCES
OF MOVEMENT OF SOUND IN SPACE (15:00)
A set of four sound experiences created by Gustavo Matamoros designed to showcase the capabilities of his Audiotheque 2.0 project’s 30-channel sound system.
 
INTERMISSION
 
/SHä’kôn/ (45:00)
PK Harris Topel Duo presents a reconstruction of the J.S. Bach Chaconne (BWV 1004) as an ambient-immersive exploration presented over the course of 45 minutes using both electronic, acoustic, and live violin. The Chaconne serves as a structural backbone to the work, appearing often as small disassociated fragments, while at other moments the Chaconne is inaudible, informing only temporal structure. As with renditions of the Chaconne by past composers such as Brahms and Busoni, /SHä’kôn/ extends the notion of transcription metaphysical, framing the Chaconne both as a musical composition and as a collective-subconscious memory.
