Stanford New Ensemble: Strange Attractors
April 28 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Location: Henry and Monique Brandon Family Community Room, Black Community Services Center - FREE!
Stanford New Ensemble presents “Strange Attractors,” a concert of new music and dance featuring members of Wild Rumpus and Megan Nicely/Dance. A varied selection of pieces written in the last 35 years span a wide range of styles and prominently feature unusual groupings of instruments, influences, and styles. Daniel Wohl’s Kin for percussion and electronics assembles a mosaic of sounds from disparate elements offered by 20 individuals. Lou Harrison’s Suite from Nek Chand uses the unique sound of the just intonation National steel guitar to weave together Hawaiian and Indian influences. Brian Ferneyhough’s Cassandra’s Dream Song for solo flute evokes a dream through a tightly-controlled structure, while Ted Hearne’s Furtive Movements pairs cello and percussion, obfuscating their normal musical roles and blurring the lines between their identities.

Joanne de Mars: cello
Giacomo Fiore: guitar
