TECTONICS: Eric Richards / Hildur Ingveldardóttir Guðnadóttir / Alvin Lucier & Jenny Lin / Jeffrey Gavett
As part of Tectonics Festival New York, a diverse program highlights works by Eric Richards, a little-known but tremendously influential American avant-garde composer who came of age in the pervasively interdisciplinary counterculture of the 1960s. Two of Richard's works are performed by percussionist Alan Zimmerman.
Alvin Lucier performs two works with pianist Jenny Lin. Baritone Jeffrey Gavett, a premiere vocalist of contemporary music, performs works by Lucier, Scelsi and two experimentalists of a younger generation Aaron Cassidy and Evan Johnson.
The festival closes with a solo set by Hildur Ingveldardóttir Guðnadóttir, an acclaimed Icelandic cellist at the forefront of experimental rock, best known for her collaborations with múm and Pan Sonic. With cello, voice and software manipulation, Guðnadóttir draws a broad spectrum of sounds from her instrument, ranging from intimate simplicity to huge soundscapes.
