How to Ding

How to Ding

“Guess I was misinformed,” admitted Ding-Dong Bell Choir director Adele Pringler after the ensemble actually sounded worse after she introduced its members to the principles of “dinging management.”

Composers Voice

Composers' Voice
January 25, 2015
Sunday at 1:00pm

Composer’s Voice presents the pinnacle of today’s music with its twice-monthly concert series of music by living composers at the Jan Hus Church, 351 East 74th Street, New York City.

"it's on the edge of what's happening"
- Brant Lyon, Great Weather for Media

This concert features works by Skip La Plante, Dennis Bathory-Kitsz, Robert Voisey, Masatora Goya, Cheryl Krugel-Lee and performances by pianist Yumi Suehiro, violinisit Sabina Torosjan, guitarist Douglas DaSilva, violin & shamisen Duo YUMENO.

Skip La Plante

Skip La Plante invents, builds, composes for, performs on and teaches with musical instruments built from trash. He co-founded the composer’s collective MUSIC FOR HOMEMADE INSTRUMENTS in 1975. He has had about 200 compositions performed professionally, many for MFHI and most of the rest composed for theater and modern dance companies in NYC. He has created somewhere between 200 and 300 instruments for his own projects, and tens of thousands more in workshops in schools, museums, etc around the US. These instruments run the gamut from simple, such as collections of tin cans used as percussion instruments, to the complex, such as replicas of instruments by microtonal pioneers Harry Partch and Julian Carillo in 43 pitch per octave just intonation and 96 pitch per octave equal temperament respectively. He lived in Indonesia for two years, studying both musical performance and gamelan building, and has performed extensively with Gamelan Kusuma Laras and Gamelan Son of Lion in the US. Working with Bash The Trash over the last 20 years, he’s done about 1500 performances in schools throughout the northeast, as well as many instrument building workshops.

Robert_Voisey-Frigid_Piggy

Robert Voisey's graphic score "Frigid Piggy" will be performed by Douglas DaSilva, Mastora Goya, Yumi Suhiro, and Hirona Amamiya. “With few opportunities and much competition,...composers show creativity in just getting heard.” And in Chris Pasles’s article in the Los Angeles Times, Robert Voisey is highlighted as one of those composers. Composing electroacoustic and chamber music, his aesthetic oscillates from the Romantic to the Post Modern Mash-Up. His work has been performed in venues throughout the world including: Carnegie Hall, World Financial Center Winter Garden Atrium, and Stratford Circus in London. Voisey has been profiled and music broadcasted on HEC-TV public television in St Louis, Elektramusik in France, as well as radio stations all around the world including: Cityscape NPR St. Louis Public Radio; Arts & Answers & Art Waves on WKCR, Upbeat with Eva Radich on Radio New Zealand; and Kol Yisrael Israeli Radio.

Pianist “Yumi Suehiro is an intense musician, one who invests every ounce of her energy, passion, and intellect into her performances” - New York Concert Review Inc.

Duo YUMENO “The blending of Japanese and European chamber traditions with a very American rhythmic propulsion was unexpectedly groovy.” - New York Times

Much of composer/guitarist Douglas DaSilva’s music is influenced by Brazilian music and has been described as “very individual, and to us has a very clear personality” in Classical Guitar Magazine.

Fifteen Minutes of Fame Robert Dick

FIFTEEN-MINUTES-OF-INFAMY with
Robert Dick

January 25, 2015
Sunday at 1:00pm

This concert features the urgently popular Vox Novus program “Fifteen-Minutes-of-Fame” which consists of 15 one-minute works by 15 living composers, selected by the performer and performed as a unified whole, teaming up with modern flute legend Robert Dick for a unique presentation called “Fifteen-Minutes-of-Infamy: Robert Dick, modern flute”.

The 15 works selected to be premiered are by composers from around the world: Elizabeth Adams, Syrlane Albuquerque, Rodrigo Baggio, Joseph Bohigian, David Bohn, Robert Dick, Rocco Di Pietro, David Drexler, Masatora Goya. David Evan Jones, Michael Mikulka, Maggi Payne, Daniel Schnee, Samuel Stokes, and David Wolfson.

"...the 15 Minutes of Fame project of Vox Novus is a godsend. It organizes competitions whereby ensembles commission worldwide calls for submissions of approximately one-minute pieces, and then select their 15 favorites for premieres. " - New York Music Culture Examiner

With equally deep roots in classical music old and new and in free improvisation and new jazz, Robert Dick has established himself as an artist who has not only mastered, but redefined the flute. Known worldwide for creating revolutionary visions of the flute's musical role, listening to Robert Dick play solo has been likened to the experience of hearing a full orchestra:

"There are few musicians that are truly revolutionary. Robert Dick is one of them."-Bill Shoemaker, JazzTimes

"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH...................."
-Dizzy Gillespie

FIFTEEN-MINUTES-OF-INFAMY: Robert Dick, Modern Flute Sunday, January 25, 2015 at 1:00 PM Jan Hus Church, 351 East 74th Street, New York, New York 10021 York 10019

Fifteen Minutes of Fame Fifteen_Minutes-of-Fame with Cornelia Petroiu

Announcing selections:
Fifteen-Minutes-of-Fame with
Cornelia Petroiu

Vox Novus is called for one-minute pieces composed for Fifteen-Minutes-of-Fame: CLASSIGARD with Cornelia Petroiu, solo viola to be premiered on February 14, 2015 for Studio Hall of the Romanian Athenaeum, Bucharest, Romania.

CLASSIGARD: From classical to avant-garde music: switching abruptly from one style to another; surprisingly unstable music. Each piece can incorporate different styles or stay within one specific style, thereby leaving the performer to blend the music into the set of 15 in the CLASSIGARD style!

Cornelia Petroiu has been inspiring composers of various tendencies and countries, who wrote for her over 100 works. She is fully dedicated to exploring the sonorities of her viola, and one may hear the concretizing of her musical research by listening to her 10 CDs. She graduated the Music Conservatory in Bucharest and deepened her musical studies at Interlochen-Michigan and Weimar-Germany. Later on, in Paris-CIFAP, she became familiar to Pro Tools software, as a sound editor.

Always passioned by the chamber music, she was the founder of Brio, Pro Musica and FlautArchi quartets, in divers instrumental combinations. Classical music performer at the beginning, she became totally involved in the contemporary music. She is both founder and member of the Trio Alto (viola, saxophone and piano), with over 40 world premieres dedicated to it, up to now. She takes regularly part in international contemporary music festivals: Musica Electronica Nova (Wroclaw), as the soniste of the Meta-Duo, the Internationl Conference and the Spectral Music Festival (Istanbul), Meridian, SIMN, Acousmania (Bucharest), Capitales Sonores (Paris), 2 Days and 2 Nights of New Music (Odessa), etc. Cornelia Petroiu is extending the sphere of the musical expression by recording and post-producing herself most of her instrumental performances.

Works selected for this Fifteen Minutes of Fame include:
Pencil by Dawid Boverhoff, Distortion on Stamitz by Héctor Oltra Garcia, April Rain by Nathan Kelly, Lánt î nghêi by Tyler Kline, Monomer by Travis Kneisly, Minute Meditation by Grisha Krivchenia, Fleeting Vision by Michael Lanci, Stumbled by Christine Lee, I'm Sick of Avant Garde by Robert Lopez, Just thinking out loud by Steven Harry Markowitz, Putere by Hinse Mutter, arabesque by Giorgos Papamitrou, Indecision by José Jesus de Azevedo Souza, Serial Triller by Jean-Pierre Vial, and Wondering Thought by Chace Williams
