Sound Out Loud is a seven-member, new music ensemble based in Madison, Wisconsin. The group specializes in contemporary music from the early 20th century to the present, as well as commissions new works to be written for it. Having drawn inspiration from numerous performance ensembles (such as Eighth Blackbird, Silk Road, and the International Contemporary Ensemble), the group seeks to expand the realm of possibilities within the chamber ensemble repertoire through the implementation of experimental techniques, the incorporation of a variety of instruments and musical styles from the Middle East and Asia, innovative performance practice, and the use of live electronics. Along with other Madison-based musicians, the group’s inaugural concert was an outdoor performance of Steve Reich’s Music for 18 Musicians, which was enjoyed by unsuspecting passers-by and was covered in several Madison-area arts blogs. It was that performance that attracted an invitation from the Conney Conference to perform again at their 2017 conference. For more information about the core ensemble, click here.

ERIC MILLER

Eric Miller presents the intimate and ethereal music for the unaccompanied viola da gamba, an instrument which was described in the late 18th century as one “with which one forgets the troubles of the day in quiet twilight.” The evening will center upon a pair compositions, one by the obscure and brilliant Parisian Le Sieur de Machy, and the other by the Dutch master Johannes Schenk, Sprinkled throughout will be smaller pieces by other luminaries of the rarefied instrument. A classically trained cellist and viola da gambist, Eric is known to Madison as a member of the Wisconsin Baroque Ensemble and has appeared with many of Madison and Milwaukee’s top ensembles.


PATRICK REINHOLZ


Patrick Reinholz is a cellist, improviser, composer, and educator currently living in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Always innovating, he is a member of the new music/improvising chamber group Tontine Ensemble, and the jazz/rock outfit Lovely Socialite.

BRIAN GRIMM
