Queens New Music Festival: The Third Eye Orchestra
Hans Tammen uses Earle Brown's open form composition idea as a starting point to create large multi-movement pieces for string and wind quartet, keyboards, rhythm section, voice and live sound processing. The Queens New Music Festival performance will feature the world premiere of Tammen's evening-length work PIKAIA, created for and performed by his ensemble Third Eye Orchestra. The work combines composed material with extemporization to create a score whose modus operandi is constant change.
All About Jazz has described Tammen's work for Third Eye Orchestra as "nothing short of breathtaking a masterpiece of musical evocation." The ensemble includes David Soldier and Jason Hwang (violins), Stephanie Griffin (viola), Alex Waterman (cello), Ned Rothenberg (clarinet, bass clarinet), Michael Lytle (clarinet, contra bass clarinet), Briggan Krauss (alto and baritone saxophones), Chris McIntyre (trombone), Dafna Naphtali (live sound processing, voice), Denman Maroney and Ursel Schlicht (piano/keyboards), Andrea Parkins (accordion), Jonas Tauber (bass), Andrew Drury (percussion).
