Parings: Alex Mincek AND Salvatore Sciarrino
("Would you like a little Wollschleger with your Satie?")
The Tank and AMP spice up contemporary classical music with an ear-twittering series of delectable (sonic) combinations. On each Tuesday in November, a different NYC-based new music ensemble will serve up an intellectual degustation pairing (pitting?) one old-vintage composer with (against?) an up-and-coming New World contender. What will the mlange reveal? Following the performance, there will be a panel discussion with the featured young composer to savor over any lingering flavors. Yum.
WET INK takes the stage on November 10th performing the music of founder Alex Mincek with works by one of Italy's most prominent living composers, Salvatore Sciarrino. Alex describes his music as "typically characterized by elements of timbral and dynamic extremes", music which "explores ways in which various forms of repetition affect our sense of time, memory and perception of difference." Sciarrino's music reaches a buoyant delicacy by gently breathing frenetic energy into a stasis field.
