Composer Miya Masaoka and Berlin-based Reidemeister Move (Robin Hayward & Christopher Williams) offer a night of interpretations within their respective musical practice


The Berlin-based Reidemeister Move (Robin Hayward – tuba; Christopher Williams – contrabass) perform Arcanum 17: a 45-minute piece composed by Christopher Williams & Charlie Morrow, with texts from André Breton’s book of the same name, set in the 8.1-channel immersive sound environment. Hayward’s self-designed microtonal tuba, and Williams’ previous work with Charles Curtis and LaMonte Young’s legendary Theatre of Eternal Music, provide the backbone for a sound based on purely tuned intervals, noise, corporeal rhythms, and spatial resonance.

Composer Miya Masaoka‘s Four Moons of Pluto—a piece which explores deep and relational resonances—will be performed by all-star cohort of 5 contrabass players Robert Black, Shayna Dulberger, Rebekah Griffin-Greene, James Ilgenfritz, and Zach Rowden. Masaoka also presents a new piece for string quartet, with a quartet featuring Stephanie Griffin (viola), Alex Shiozaki (violin), and Michael Haas (cello).
