Waverly Project - New Music Festival

  1. SATURDAY APRIL 18th | 7:30pm | Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center | NYC

    FEDE CAMARA HALAC
    Flesh / Carne (b.cl, vc, db, perc, pno)

    "Flesh" is the third and last part of the "Songs for the Dead" cycle. Time and activity within this cycle come from different expressions of randomness applied to different sets of sounds, resulting in similar stationary states. The nervous iridiscence of the gestures contraposed to extremely slow processes result in a kind of formal stasis, a motion leading nowhere and anywhere at the same time, moving inwardly and outwardly but remaining in the same place.

    WAVERLY PROJECT
    NEW MUSIC FESTIVAL BY NYU COMPOSERS

    ABOUT

    The NYU GSAS Department of Music in collaboration with the student organization First Performance Club is presenting a Festival of New Music on the Spring of 2015. The festival includes six concerts involving professional new music ensembles where more than 16 New Works by NYU composers will be premiered, alongside with lectures and masterclasses by invited composers Steve Takasugi and Pierluigi Billone, workshops with ensembles and more.

    OUR MISSION

    The mission of the festival is to bring together all those students who are interested in composing and producing new music, to give opportunities to young composers to collaborate with professional ensembles and promote their work and to project NYU as a creative center of new music.

    Recorded live on April 18th 2015
    at Clemente Solo Velez Cultural Center

    ABOUT THE ENSEMBLE:

    ensemble mise­-en is the assiduously persistent chamber orchestra and music collective exposing pertinent and exquisite works of contemporary music to audiences in New York. Founded in 2011 by composer Moon Young Ha and now in it’s fourth season, the ensemble seeks to cultivate large­ scale composition projects.

    ensemble mise­-en has premiered several dozens of works by lesser known or underperformed composers alongside reigning powers of the contemporary scene. This has included portrait concerts of composers Bent Sørensen and Wolfgang Mitterer, and upcoming programs dedicated to the works of Hans Abrahamsen, Lasse Thoresen and more. The ensemble has also focused on re­examining problematic and influential works of the twentieth century, including two concert collaborations with the Italian Academy at Columbia University; last winter’s “Franco Donatoni Portrait”, and in Fall 2014, a Luciano Berio program which will focus on works the composer wrote during his time in New York.

    ensemble mise­-en primarily collaborates with cultural organizations in the city to facilitate diverse programs. During the last two seasons, the ensemble has worked with the Korean Cultural Service, Taipei Cultural Center, Americas Society, Scandinavia House, Austrian Cultural Forum, Italian Academy at Columbia University, Consulate General of Germany and the Consulate General of Denmark, as well as New York University, where the ensemble rehearses and holds workshops and performances with undergraduate and graduate composers.

    In June 2014 , mise­-en completed its first annual music festival. After a call for scores elicited 862 submissions from 65 different countries, more than thirty pieces were chosen to be performed over four days of performances, workshops, and rehearsals by the ensemble, as well as guest groups Momenta Quartet and Ensemble Paramirabo of Canada. The festival included free workshops on composition, orchestration, and improvisation featuring mise-­en instrumentalists as well the vocalist Fay Victor and Korean traditional instrumentalist Gamin. On the final day of the festival, a new music marathon consisted of 4 concerts (total of 6 hours) in quick succession, performed for audiences from all walks of life.

    Though the ensemble operates in New York, it has begun to expand its purview, with a performance during the past season at the Goethe-­Institut Boston, and a workshop for composers at the art gallery kijidome Boston.

    During the 2014-­2015 season, ensemble mise­-en has a residency with the League of Composers/ISCM, the New York University Music Department, City University of New York and a diverse array of concerts planned at venues throughout the city, amounting to a veritable plethora of world premiers. The second annual mise­-en music festival, from June 10 to 13 in 2015, will include a collaboration with Iktus Percussion, as well as another wildly ambitious new music marathon.
