MATA Festival: Mechanical Turks
MATA presents an evening of works that stand at the intersection of new music, performance art and sound art. Known for her work with concrete sounds, Dutch-Welsh composer Jobina Tinnemans follows the lead of the late Cornelius Cardew incorporating nonmusicians into a new music context. Her MATA commission, a concerto grosso for solo knitters, instrumental ensemble and a ripieno orchestra of knitters, visualizes the passage of time through its trace in fibre. In addition MATA presents Henry Vega's ritualistic invocations for vocalist and electronic sounds performed by American expat vocalist Stephanie Pan accompanied by video projection, Jessie Marino's performance art piece written for the two performers of On Structure, and Seth Cluett's enactment of weather patterns on a metal tray of water activated by electronic sounds and three clarinets.

Jobina Tinnemans: Killing Time for knitters and ensemble (World Premiere MATA commission)
Seth Cluett: Cloud-to-Air for three clarinets, water-filled metal tray, sine tones and projections
Jessie Marino: Rot Blau I for two performers
Henry Vega: Wormsongs for vocalist and electronics

509 Atlantic Avenue

The performance of Killing Time is sponsored in part by Lion Brand yarn.
