Concert II - Double Portrait - Erickson / Dempster
Seattle Modern Orchestra celebrates the centennial of American composer Robert Erickson and the 80th birthday of legendary Seattle trombonist and composer Stuart Dempster. Erickson (1917-1997) crystallizes the American pioneering spirit in music. He was one of the first American composers to explore Schoenbergs twelve-tone system, experimented with custom-made percussion instruments and instrumental extended techniques, and worked extensively with sounds recorded on tape with or without live performers. The three works on this program give a glimpse into this underrated American artist. Erickson will be paired with another pioneer, Stuart Dempster. Dempster  whose motto is put play back in playing music  and SMO collaborate on precomposed and improvised works, including a world premiere written for SMO, titled S. M. O. R. E. S.
