Listen/Space is thrilled to announce the first year of our Listen/Space Commissions. The 2015 project is called MUSIC FROM LISTEN/SPACE, aptly named, as all six composers we’ve commissioned presented incredibly groundbreaking works at Listen/Space when we were a little DIY venue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. These six composers represent the music Listen/Space seeks to champion. We are excited to commission these new works, perform and, most importantly, record them. An archive for the future: what is happening now in american experimental music.
Composers: G. Douglas Barrett, André Cormier, Travis Just, Devin Maxwell, Jonathan Marmor, and Quentin Tolimieri.
An ensemble of nine incredibly diverse and experienced performers of experimental music have been invited to spend a week in residence in June 2015, rehearsing and recording, at our beautiful mountain cabin studio just outside of Park City, Utah.
Eric KM Clark, violin, Kevin Farrell, bass, Nate Herrera, alto sax, Devin Maxwell, conductor, Andrew Munsey, percussion, Gavin Ryan, vibes, Kristin Olson, oboe, Katie Porter, clarinet/bass clarinet, Stephanie Richards, trumpet and Christine Tavolacci, flute.
