("Would you like a little Wollschleger with your Satie?")
The Tank and AMP spice up contemporary classical music with an ear-twittering series of delectable (sonic) combinations. On each Tuesday in November, a different NYC-based new music ensemble will serve up an intellectual degustation pairing (pitting?) one old-vintage composer with (against?) an up-and-coming New World contender. What will the mlange reveal? Following the performance, there will be a panel discussion with the featured young composer to savor over any lingering flavors. Yum.
AMP will present two pieces on the November 24th, final concert: a new work by AMP director ADAM MIRZA, for tenor saxophone, electric guitar and accordion, and KARLHEINZ STOCKHAUSEN'S other-worldly Mikrophonie I , for large tam-tam, microphones, filters and controllers. Both works address sound as the reverberation of a physical action, the human (musical) gesture amplified, filtered and projected by an instrumental embodiment.
