ENRIC RIU: new work (2015) 

Summary:  Sound Portrait VII is a solo piece for bass-clarinet specially tailored and dedicated to the bass-clarinetist Emily Beisel.  Following the path of the 6 preceding Sound Portraits, this work delves in the possibilities to improve the communication between composer, interpreter and audience by means of co-creation, multi-reality, and other additional supports. This piece also takes carefully into account the venue (The Historic Pabst Brewery - Milwaukee) and its special acoustics in order to offer the best final result, namely: the highest possible level of communication.

Chicago, IL  

Ray Evanoff: Narratives (2014)
Mark Andre: iv 3 (2008)
Tim McCormack: RAW MATTER (2015)
Stefan Maier New Work (2016)

A foray into the intricacies and frustrations of human communication: micro-level intimacy binds together Mark Andre's iv 3, fragmented lines of conversation fracture the surface of Ray Evanoff's Narratives and Tim McCormack's RAW MATTER forces the performer into extreme levels of external physicality and power. Finally a new work for performer and electronics by Stefan Maier in which he "is primarily concerned with the tactility of unruly sound and interested in how we listen for speaking subjects: What is left out in this listening configuration? In what ways do various environments (digital, organic, inorganic) speak to us?
