Quasi-Gig Alert (Eastern Iowa)
I usually lurk around here, but I've been known to post in the past.
Anyway, this coming Friday and Sunday nights I'll be performing with the
largest looper's rig I've ever been involved with: a 60+ member
choir. We'll be performing 3 pieces I wrote for the group, all of which
feature looping in various configurations (though all loops, mangled or
otherwise, will be performed manually by the choir...old world looping
technology at work).
If any of the following are of any interest to you, you should check out
extreme hocketing (a la Louis Andriessen, Robert Fripp)
non-linear minimalism (think Stravinsky crossed with Reich)
modernist refraction of Renaissance polyphony (Palestrina crossed with
Schoenberg; like P.M. Davies but not nearly as sinister)
OK, those should do as descriptions for the 3 pieces of mine to be
performed on the concert.
Who: Chorale Midwest
When: Friday, May 2 and Sunday, May 4; 7:30PM (both are evening
Where: First Lutheran Church, Cedar Rapids, IA
How Much: $10 for adults, $8 for kids and seniors
After the concerts are done and I can take the time, I'll write something
about how some of the more esoteric functions of the EDP have influenced
non-real-time looping compositions.
