    Mantra Percussion presents the music of Eric KM Clark and Michael Gordon

    Mantra Percussion presents Eric KM Clark's Hummingbird Sheet Metal, Deprivation Music No. 7, and Michael Gordon's Timbe

    Eric KM Clark has written many works exploring hearing and sight deprivation. Deprivation Music No. 7 was written for Mantra Percussion in 2009, and explores singing, slight movement, and the following of instructions over headphones. Snare drums will be used. And possibly, a short composition involving sheet metal and bows.

    Michael Gordon's work Timber is an evening-length tour de force. Scored for six graduated wooden Simantras — Greek liturgical percussion instruments used by French composer Iannis Xenakis — the work brings the physicality, endurance and technique of percussion performance to a new level. In this new work, Gordon shapes the music in both polyrhythmic and dynamic waves of textures — often each players' hands are in separate rhythmic 'worlds', each traversing a different dynamic contour from loud to soft to loud, similar in some respects to his solo for percussion, XY

    Much of Gordon's music demonstrates a deep exploration into the extreme possibilities and stunning nature of rhythm, as well as the enriching, yet disturbing, multidimensionality of polyrhythmic layers — what has been termed in his music to be, "glorious confusion." Many of Gordon's works, including TranceGothamDecasia, and his most recent orchestral work, Dystopia, point to Gordon's interest in complex rhythmic and textural territory. Gordon's percussion sextet takes these elements and explores the extreme possibilities of rhythm and texture to a beautifully intense degree. The new evening-length work is indeed a unique and exciting addition to the world of percussion.  

    Timber was co-commissioned by the Dutch dance company, Club Guy and RoniSlagwerk den Haag, Mantra Percussion, with support from the Nief-Norf project.

    Dog Star 8: Sign/Symbol/Sound(s)

    For Anne LeBaron - with Eric KM Clark, Orin Hildestad, Stephanie Smith, and Matt Barbier. For one trombone and three violins, For Anne LeBaron compresses the melody from the jazz standard 'nature boy' into a series of occasional chords interspersed with atmospheric "ghost notes" from the violins. The piece draws its inspiration from a conversation with LeBaron addressing the question: "Can a single melody be stretched over an extended period of time, and still be audible as a memory?"

    Juniper Foam: performed by Casey Anderson, Scott Cazan, and James Klopfleisch. Sound for a portrait of Chris Marker considers the trace contours of an artist whose own near-absence was a continuing thread in both his films and public persona.  By and large, this portrait navigates various collections of audio sampled from films, not of his own making, but of others', lying just beyond his overall body of work.  Section 1, however, unfolds the soundtrack from a watermark in Marker's career, which is the 1982 filmic essay, Sans Soleil.

    And finally AlmostEveryNamePieceMarkSoHasEverWritten is an attempt to realize all of So's name pieces, synchronously, quietly, and in a most(ly) private way. Performed (over several weeks) by James Klopfleisch.

Works and performances by: Tracy Jeanne Rosenthal, Paul Fraser, Odeya Nini, The Joshua Trio, KREation, Matt Broach, Max Gualtieri, Julian Valdivieso, Alex Sramek, Ingrid Lee, Taylor Brizendine, Richard Valitutto, Kate Hall, Evan Burrows, Adeline, Max Kutner, and The Buddy HollyCo$t.

    Screening of some new music videos.

    Screening of some new music videos - Julia Holter/Rick Bahto - "Marienbad", Julia Holter/Yelena Zhelezov - "Moni Mon Amie", Heather Lockie/Susanna Battin - "When You're Young"... 

    followed by: Rick Bahto, Julia Holter, and Mark So inhabiting studies in topiary (Bahto), some keyboard miscellany (Christian Wolff, Morton Feldman), and a 3-tape reading of John Ashbery's poem "As You Came from the Holy Land" [readings 39] (So)

    More information about the films:

    "Marienbad"
    I wanted to make something that would serve as a visual accompaniment to Julia Holter's song "Marienbad", but would not be strictly tied to it. I utilized multiple film projections interacting and interfering with one another in a single composition. The material seen in this video was made with Kodak Tri-X regular 8 mm motion picture film and Kodak Plus-X 35 mm still film, all of it processed by hand. The video is a single take documenting a live performance using two 8 mm projectors and a single 35 mm projector all aimed at the same space on a screen; there is no digital manipulation of the images, and no edits have been made to the recording. Rick Bahto - January, 2012
    Film / photography / projector performance by Rick Bahto.
    Many thanks to Walter Vargas for digital documentation

    "Moni Mon Amie"
    The video for "Moni Mon Amie" interprets the song as a lyrical appeal to the unattainable other, and a conversation that's being had with oneself. The longing transforms the perception of the everyday, turning each moment into a poetic landscape in which the miniature and the gigantic become interchangeable. Julia plays the subject and the object of desire in this video. Yelena Zhelezov - March 2012

    'When You're Young'
    The video is a series of portraits of people caught in a closed circuit loop of bodily and facial expressions formed by yarn and a game of telephone. Within the song is a parallel story of homemaking; it directs the people to an abandoned suburban development in the Mojave Desert called California City. Here they play the game of imitation and amplification without making eye contact - they are both alone and tied to each other, forming the estranged new desert culture of the video.

    Solo, Many, All

    Two new pieces (solo live electronics, the other participatory) concluding with an open discussion based on a prompt. The event will shift from an exclusive format (solo) to one in which everyone present is placed on an equal playing field (all).

    The live electronics piece is rooted around Anderson's current interest in instrument design for/around chaotic data networks, while the participatory piece is based on a poem about a poem about a painting owned by a poet, and will feature something like writing, breathing, tearing paper (etc.). Concluding the event will be an open discussion on exclusivity.

    What will be the next move? Those who know him might expect a knight's jump...but then they know he won't do the expected. How about a king's stately step this time? Or the bishop's stealthy sneak-through?

    Next time it might be: sound poetry (his own works and maybe an occasional 'classic' from this tradition); songs in invented languages, for instance in "Onderlands" (the language of the Underlands, a synonym for Netherlands), in "GeenKrimpian" or in his personal English, "IngleTwist"; phonetic processes, acoustic as well as electronic; live animation generated by sound and the opposite (live sound generated by animation); snippets of lecturing about odd topics, for instance "The User Manual"; some Solos for Voice by John Cage; soundscapes; quotations from Final Letters; improvisations and more...
