About the Listen/Space Commissions:

This year we commissioned 6 new experimental chamber music pieces for 9 performers. These works represent our long-time collaborators and the best of the music we presented in our concert venue, Listen/Space, in Brooklyn. Over the week of June 22-29, 2015 an all-star ensemble is gathering in our cabin to rehearse and record these new pieces. This House Concert will be our celebratory run-through before we head into the recording studio. More about the project: https://listenspacemusic.wordpress.com/

Please join us!

6 out of 6! Travis Just’s KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN

Our last commission arrived!  And it’s like icing on the cake.  KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN from Travis Just for flute, oboe, alto sax, bass clarinet, trumpet, violin, electric bass and drums.  My bass clarinet part is totally big and raucous, the trumpet and sax are improvising a bit and there’s a drumset.  YES>  I can really tell that Travis wrote this for this specific group of players.  We are going to do what we do best in this piece.

I’ve played and listened to Travis’ music for a long time, and this piece is so exciting to me.   I’m a big fan.  We also had a lot of fun hosting Object Collection in various forms at Listen/Space.

Cheers from the mountain!  Can’t wait for everyone to get here.

Our next commission: Devin Maxwell’s “Ogden, UT”

Devin says he’s going to write pieces about places until we find a place in the world that is right for us.  This one’s called Ogden, UT, where he watched a great baseball game with the kids.

I think the second movement is going to sound like King Crimson.  Super loud non-stop bass clarinet and alto saxophone tremolos!
