Dale Speicher + Nat Evans: New Media & New Music
An innovative program featuring New Music in two distinct but complementary formats. In the first half, percussionist Dale Speicher performs Herbert Brun’s Plot for Percussion (1967), a premier of Stuart Saunders Smith’s Mornings (2009), and the debut of a work by Speicher using Novels in Three Lines by Felix Feneon as inspiration. In the second half, artists Erin Elyse Burns and Megan Berner have created videos for which composer Nat Evans has written ethereal and haunting scores that will be performed live. There will also be the debut of Telephone Conversation, a short work for violin and cello.
