Collide-O-Scope Music is proud to be entering its Fourth Season of contemporary chamber music and experimental electronic mixed-media concert productions. Led by Artistic Directors Augustus Arnone and Lou Bunk, the group has offered an eclectic mix of new works by some of the leading emerging voices of our time as well as essential classics from the modern repertory. Musical works are presented within an innovative concert setting where fixed compositions give way to episodes of improvisation, remixing, and electronic sound textures woven together in seamless, continuous sets.
The coming season opens in December at Brooklyn's Firehouse Space in collaboration with vanguard violin duo String Noise. The program features the premieres of works by John Zorn, David Lang, Gordon Monahan, and co-Artistic Director Lou Bunk, as well as music by John Cage, Elizabeth Adams, and Yotam Haber. The program will also feature improvisation by co-Artistic Director Augustus Arnone utilizing MIDI-enabled acoustic piano and Edmund Campion's "Natural Selection" processing environment.
Additional dates follow in the Spring as Collide-O-Scope Music performs at Greenwich House. The program will include works by Donald Martino, Salvatore Sciarrino, Charles Wuorinen, Jonathan Harvey, and the premieres of new works by Aaron Brooks and Lou Bunk. The group will also present it's largest scale collaborative project to date with "Walls And Lattices." Conceived by Chris Bailey, Lou Bunk, and Augustus Arnone, this program presents a concert-length evening of new works by 16 different composers, written specifically to be woven together into a seamless whole, a larger meta-composition. Composers collaborating on this program include Ken Ueno, Nathan Davis, John Mallia, Derek Hurst, Vic Rawlings, Matt Lima, Jack Callahan, Cenk Ergun, Elizabeth Adams, Jacob Barton, Ramin Amir Arjomand, Todd Tarantino, Aaron Brooks, Spencer Topel, Lou Bunk, and Chris Bailey.
