Making its Kitchen debut, TILT Brass’ Sextet joins cellist Okkyung Lee in revisiting legendary composer and computer musician David Behrman‘s work Open Space With Brass at The Kitchen in Chelsea.
The work was first heard during the Merce Cunningham Dance Company‘s final performances in December 2011 at Park Avenue Armory. They again join forces as part of the Synth Nights, an
“…intergenerational electronic music series features recent and vintage works by… Behrman, including Runthrough (1968, for homemade synthesizers and light-controlled mixers), Cello with Melody-driven Electronics (1974, for cello with pitch-sensors and triangle-wave generators), Interspecies Smalltalk (1984, for violin, keyboard, Apple II computer and accessories)… and Ben Vida collaborates with Greg Davis to present a new work, Tripartite Node, utilizing a hybrid computer/analog synthesizing setup designed for real-time composition and centralized control-source improvisations.” [from The Kitchen website]
