ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE:

Ben Neill's MANITOGA will begin with players widely dispersed in the woodland garden who will gradually move closer to the Quarry Pool and waterfall. The musicians play sculptor Carol Szymanski's elegant brass phonemophones, bugles in the form of letters spelling out the word "MANITOGA." Through his electronic Mutantrumpet, Neill will engage in musical dialogues with them, shaping the acoustic and electronic textures in real time.

Instrumentalists: Mark Boulanger, Jason Covey, James O'Connor, John Charles Thomas, Peter Zummo

MANITOGA, the composition, draws upon sources as varied as the Native American spiritual connection to nature, the region's Revolutionary War history of battle cries and bugle calls, and Mahler's use of the horn call as a pastorale. A Hudson Valley resident, Neill's work reflects the experience of hearing Taps played from across the river at West Point and the rhythmic and melodic processes of insects and birds in the Hudson Highlands.

ABOUT BEN NEILL:

Ben Neill is a musical powerhouse, a serious and individual talent. Time Out London

Composer and trumpeter, Ben Neill's music blends influences from electronica, jazz and minimalism. He has studied with La Monte Young and has collaborated with musicians such as David Behrman and John Cage. Neill has recorded nine CDs of his music and has performed extensively in a wide variety of international settings. In 2010 his music theater work Persephone was presented at the BAM Next Wave Festival. The recording Songs for Persephone with Mimi Goese was released in 2011 on Ramseur Records to critical acclaim.

Neill's THE DEMO, an electronic opera created and performed in collaboration with composer/performer Mikel Rouse, premiered on April 1, 2015 at the Bing Concert Hall at Stanford University.
