Curtis Rumrill In This Styrofoam Room (2017)
Christine Burke 6 fingers/We go there by any road we take (2017)
Pittsburgh's Kamraton performs two commissions that ask the audience to seek meaning in the obscure and the residual. Christine Burke's six fingers: we go there by any road we take places the musicians in pairs, in which one partner freely interprets a text or sonic material and the other partner improvises a response to the sometimes barely audible sounds. Curtis Rumrill's In this Styrofoam Room sets a text by Zachary Webber and explores the longings of a beetle as she lays her eggs in a trash heap.

Jocelyn Hagen- Gwendolens Dream (2001)
Steven Knell - Anthemoessa (2012)
Sarah Hersh - In Praise of Continuous New Dreams of New York City (2011)
Juxtatonal [JUX], a trio for voice, clarinet, and cello, will present a program that juxtaposes aesthetic extremes. Steven Knells Anthemoessa tells the dark tale of the fall of the sirens, Sarah Hershs In Praise... presents a playful pair of cabaret-like songs, and Jocelyn Hagens Gwendolens Dream is a beautiful setting of a poem about a mysterious love.
Emily Beisel, Bass Clarinet

Fat Pigeon - Page of Tin (2016), A Feign Opt (2017), and free improvisation
Fat Pigeon's music, both composed work and open improvisation, features the use of macro-timbres that are built from the group's unorthodox instrumentation into complex layers. The use of contact microphones combined with close physical proximity during performance introduces an acousmatic element in which sounds are perceived apart from their source. This experience of the group's performances further blurs the perception of "authorship" of each sound. This program's combination of improvisation and co-composition encourages an experience of Fat Pigeon's music that offers both a Cagean purity of sound and an enthralling intimacy of tight-knit communication.
