Collide-O-Scope Music is proud to be entering its Fifth 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 cutting-edge pianist Adam Tendler. The program features music by John Cage Michael Finnissy, and the premiere of a new solo clarinet work by co-Artistic Director Lou Bunk. This program will also feature a renewed collaboration with Boston based video artist, Greg Kowalski.
Additional dates follow in the Spring, as on May 3 at Faust Harrison Pianos in Manhattan, Collide-O-Scope Music co-directors Lou Bunk and Augustus Arnone will be collaborating with one of the most compelling new music champions of our time, Marilyn Nonken, in a program of Spectral Music for one and two pianos. Featured on the program will be works by Edmund Campion, Dominique Troncin, Michael Klingbeil, and Hugues Dufourt. Then on May 31, at Symphony Space, Collide-O-Scope Music performs an exciting program of new and recent works which explore the re-imagining and translation of other art forms into new musical settings. Included on the program is premiere of a new work by Yotam Haber, made possible through a Fromm Commission, which recomposes music by Benedetto Marcello, as well as the premieres of new works by Spencer Topel and Lou Bunk. Also on the program will be Jason Eckardt's After Serra, inspired by the large scale sculptures of Richard Serra this work is a tour de force of extreme complexity and transcendental instrumental pyrotechnics.
