TECTONICS: Harley Gaber, "The Winds Rise in the North"
The second day of Tectonics Festival turns attention to Harley Gaber, a complex American composer, filmmaker, artist, and tennis player. Gaber's monumental work "The Winds Rise in the North" is performed by a quintet including extraordinary string players Conrad Harris, Pauline Kim, Esther Noh, Alex Waterman and Erin Wright. A pillar of American minimalism, the near-100 minute work is scored in four sections with amplified instruments largely performed sul ponticello (on or near the bridge of the instruments), yielding rich harmonic combinations and overtones.
Prior to this performance, Saturday May 24th at 6pm, a panel on the artist's life and works is moderated by composer Eric Richards, with guests Paul Paccione, Ned Sublette and Bill Hellerman.
