An evening of world premieres by two of New York's most innovative young ensembles. REDSHIFT and Mivos Quartet team up for a two-set program of electroacoustic music. REDSHIFT unveils Arctic Sounds and Mivos presents new music by Tristan Perich and Samson Young.
REDSHIFT's most ambitious project yet is Arctic Sounds: a full-length program of electroacoustic music that incorporates field recordings of Alaskan wildlife as captured by field researcher Kathy Turco.
MIVOS Quartet will premiere two new works for string quartet and electronics by Tristan Perich and Samson Young. In Tristan Perich's Salt, the acoustic string timbre fuses with 1-bit electronic instruments, sinewy and otherworldly. Salt is one of several of Perich's recent works which refer to inorganic materials. Samson Young's new work for string quartet will combine influences from classical, pop, electronica, and noise music to find a unique path.
