John Krausbauer + Agnes Szelag


John Krausbauer (Los Angeles) will be performing a new composition, "music for accordion(s)/harmonium(s),"  along with Agnes Szelag (Oakland).  The piece is composed for live and multi-tracked accordion and harmonium.  The composition is constructed from a simple systems-music structure and involves a phasing/detuning from a fundamental tone over the course of 30+ minutes.  The resulting music contains sound textures that generate a multitude of beating tones, audibly active harmonic movement, and complex overtone patterns, as well as other psychoacoustic phenomena.

 

 

Daniel Steffey / Nick Wang Duo
 

Two pieces will be presented - "BOB[Pouch]" for snare drum and electronics; and "buzzbALL" for udu drum and electronics.

These pieces focus on controlling speaker-microphone feedback mediated through solo percussion instruments and electronic processing. The drum acts as a resonant body that, in conjunction with the fixed characteristics of the room, speaker, and microphone, colors the sound of the feedback. By performing on the instruments in a previously composed and instructed manner, the percussionist can trigger feedback events and directly manipulate the sonic character of the resonance of the snare drum (or udu drum).

Daniel Steffey - snare drum, udu drum
