Description

Ryan Patrick Maguire - new A/V work [2018] (world premiere)

Michael Pisaro - Asleep, Desert, Choir, Agnes [2016] (european premiere)

Michael Baldwin - Talking Music [2018] (world premiere)

Kepla [LIVE]


VIRTUALLYREALITY presents an evening themed around submergence and emergence. We open with a new work from Virginian composer and sound-artist Ryan Patrick Maguire, whose work as 'The Ghost in the mp3' constructs detailed, arabesque works out of the sounds lost in .mp3 compression.

This is followed by the european premiere of fellow US-based composer Michael Pisaro's 'Asleep, Desert, Choir, Agnes', a hushed, insular work for 22 musicians which stifles sustained instrumental tones under sounds from pine cones, stones, branches and more.

During the interval, Michael Baldwin's 'Talking Music' shall almost go unnoticed. Unknown performers make annotated recordings of the concert performances, integrating and interpolating them into conversations during the interval. This integration is compositionally structured so that conversations gradually and subtly become infused with musical and performative dimensions that resonate with what has come, and remains to come, of the concert experience.

Finally, fresh from releasing his debut LP 'Absent Personae' with DeForrest Brown Jr. on New-York label PTP fka Purple Tape Pedigree, Quantum Natives-affiliate and heavyweight of the Liverpool scene Kepla will be performing live. His work inhabits sprawling, philosophical sound-worlds that suggest deep, ecological and environmental networks, worlds that propose a recalibration, a re-flattening of the hierarchy between man and nature.
