Concert II - Musica Electronica
Luciano Berio - Differences for flute, clarinet, harp, viola, cello and tape (1959)
Ewa Trebacz - Ligeia for invisible soprano, ensemble and surround sound (2016) World Premiere, commissioned by SMO
Kaija Saariaho - Lichtbogen for nine instruments and live electronics (1986)
This concert is produced in partnership with DXARTS.
Seattle Modern Orchestra presents a full concert of electronic music, including three works from three different generations and three stages of technologic development. SMO has commissioned Seattle-based Polish composer and research scientist at University of Washington DxARTS Ewa Trbacz to write a piece for ensemble and surround sound. Trbacz utilizes the latest technologies in sound processing and spatialization in an immersive approach to music with a lyrical narrative. To place this new work in context, this concert will present Differences (1959) by celebrated Italian composer Luciano Berio for small ensemble and tape. The tape plays a filtered, transposed, expanded recording of the acoustic part, creating a polyphonic relationship with the live ensemble. Finally, we will feature Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho's Lichtbogen (stemming from Northern Lights) for ensemble and live electronics designed at the French institute IRCAM.
