10/29 | Breaking Ground @ Mills Concert Hall ft Sound Out Loud Ensemble

Sat, 10/29  |  7pm  Free @ Mills Concert Hall

455 N Park St, Madison, Wisconsin 53706

BREAKING GROUND

UW Madison faculty bassoonist Marc Vallon has planned a special concert of groundbreaking works of music from the 17th, 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. Professor Vallon writes: “Composers of all periods have continually explored new musical territories, looked for new paths, and tried, through groundbreaking works, to launch new courses of musical expression. This program offers the public pieces that have, in their time, provided a starting point to new musical routes, just as the first stroke of a shovel is the birth of a new building and a new era.” The concert will include music by J.S. Bach, Ludwig van Beethoven, Alexander Scriabin, Iannis Xenakis, John Cage, Helmut Lachenmann, and Morton Feldman.

I’m very excited to perform Helmut Lachenmann’s “Pression” (1969) for solo cello on Saturday!  The graph score is extremely precise, just as much a piece of visual art as it is an exploration of quiet extended technique.

Introducing…

Sound Out Loud (SOL)

New Music Ensemble

Sound Out Loud  is a new music performing ensemble currently based out of Madison, WI.  The group specializes in contemporary music from the early 20th century to the present, as well as commissioning new works to be written for them.  Having drawn inspiration from numerous performance ensembles (such as Eighth Blackbird, Silk Road, the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), and more), the group seeks to expand the realm of possibilities within the chamber music ensemble performance repertoire through the implementation of experimental techniques, the incorporation of a variety of instruments and musical styles from the Middle East and Asia, and the use of live electronics and other media applications.
