CD Release Party - Group Theory

Sun Apr 29 2012
Tenri Cultural Institute

New York, NY

Come and celebrate the release of c)i’s first CD release, GROUP THEORY on New Dynamic Records.

This program presents the aesthetic and expressive ranges of counter)inductions repertoire, from the sputtering, compulsive dynamism of Eric Moe’s Dead Cat Bounce to the vocal explorations of Kyle Bartlett’s Mothers, from the polyglot improvisation of Douglas Boyce’s A Brief History of Acceleration to the baroque forms of Ryan Streber’s Partita, and from harmonic playfulness of Erich Stem’s Moving On to the quiet introspection of Hyla’s Ciao Manhattan.

Programme:

“Once when father (George Ives) was asked: 'How can you stand it to hear old John Bell (who was the best stonemason in town) bellow off-key the way he does at camp-meetings?' his answer was: 'Old John is a supreme musician. Look into his face and hear the music of the ages. Don't pay too much attention to the sounds. If you do, you may miss the music. You won't get a heroic ride to Heaven on pretty little sounds!'”
--Charles Ives
