Morton Subotnick, Kathleen Supove, Morgan Packard & Joshue Ott
Kathleen Supove is one of America's most acclaimed and versatile contemporary music pianists. She regularly presents a series of solo concerts entitled The Exploding Piano, in which she has performed and premiered works by the world's leading composers as well as countless emerging ones. The Exploding Piano is a multimedia experience that employs theatrical elements, vocal rants, performance art, staging, electronics, and collaboration with artists from other disciplines. Kathleen has appeared with The Lincoln Center Festival, The Philip Glass Ensemble, Bang On a Can Marathon, Music at the Anthology, The Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, and other venues, ranging from concert halls to theatrical spaces to clubs. Her most recent CD is INFUSION, released on the International Classics label, which features music for solo piano and electronics. Other recordings can be found on the Tzadik, CRI, Innova, New World, Neuma, Bridge, Centaur, OO, and XI labels.
Morgan Packard's sound is rooted in a decade's immersion in beat-based electronic music and informed by periods of intense study of jazz, western classical music, and computer programming. The structure of Morgan's music begins with loop-based electronica. However he uses software of his own creation to subtly disrupt the loopness inherent in this form. Every iteration of a loop has incremental changes, which over time becomes something entirely different from its origin. The constantly shifting texture is due both to the software techniques employed and the hand guiding the results. Morgan carefully nudges the arrangements into music that pays homage to a host of techniques and styles that have come before it; taking those ideas and stretching them into new forms; adhering to select guidelines, while disregarding most.
