Georgia Bell: Mouthfeel, Earfeel
Words and language are what dictate the shape of most of the sounds that we make with our voices, in music and in everyday life.  When we listen to sung or spoken words, how much of that experience is of the feeling of the sounds of the words as opposed to the feeling of the meaning of the words?  This arrangement of a classic french pop song pushes the meaning behind language into the background and brings its auditory nuances and cadence into the foreground.
Voice: Argenta Walther, Jess Basta, Georgia Bell

Jake Rosenzweig: STARE AT THE SUN UNTIL YOU SEE NOTHING
STARE AT THE SUN UNTIL YOU SEE NOTHING
is a hypnotic and meditative long-form drone piece featuring a triple double-bass section plus bassoon and two trombones.  The basses place a second D string on their instruments, one being a new string, the other having already been on for some time.  They drone on their two Ds, and over time (the piece is to be played at least 20 min) the newer string will slowly de-tune, creating a cloud of dense and subtly dissonant textures.  The horns play either a D or an A once every 2-3 minutes for as long their breath lasts.  The register and timing of their notes is up to them, and they are to play independently of one another.  Over the course of the piece they can play a C once, also at a time and register of their choosing.
Basses:
Brendan Carn,James Klopfleisch, Jacob Rosenzweig; Bassoon: Archie Carey; Trombones: Matt Barbier, Daniel Eaton

Daniel Eaton: Body Wave
A new composition for amplified trombone, objects, laptop, and customized multi-speaker array.  Body Wave utilizes a room's acoustics and physical attributes in a choreographed dance of pulsing frequencies and sonic gesticulation.
