Sarah Hennies Passing in NYC

I’m in NYC this weekend to play bass clarinet with an awesome group in Sarah Hennies  Passing.

Saturday May 5, 8PM at Quibit, NYC, NY

Supported by a 2018 NYSCA Individual Artist commission, Qubit is thrilled to present Sarah Hennies at Project-Q. Ms. Hennies, alongside a stellar group of eight other New York musicians and dancers, will premiere “Passing”, an evening-length new work that pairs field recordings of busy and crowded public spaces in NYC, Ithaca, Philadelphia, and Buffalo.

Red Desert is the duo project of clarinetist Katie Porter and composer/percussionist Devin Maxwell, who have been performing, commissioning, creating and championing interesting music for 17 years. Their program stems from the stripped-down, austere and crystalline beauty of Pauline Oliveros and Alvin Lucier, and extends to younger composers Lucie Vitkova and Devin Maxwell.

The program concludes with Catherine Lamb’s new composition muto infinitas, for bass flute and double bass, performed by Christine Tavolacci and Scott Worthington. Lamb’s work explores the elemental, physical aspects of sound, and of the room, and requires performers to adjust their tuning to the harmonic series of overtones found in every physical space, and every harmonic vibrating body.
