The Miralia/Stranahan Duo creates innovative and dynamic soundscapes using both ancient and modern acoustic and electronic instruments. They draw influences from the avant-garde, free improvisation, experimental noise, metal, musique concrète, and ambient musics, but the results are wholly original and will never be reproduced exactly the same way again.
Gemma Peacocke - Dwalm
Dave Reminick - Consort
Pauline Oliveros - Thirteen Changes
~Nois is a Chicago-based saxophone quartet that defies categorization by working between the boundary of contemporary classical music and experimental improvisation. They will present an aesthetically diverse program centered around new and experimental sounds for the saxophone quartet. Featuring works by Gemma Peacocke, David Reminick, and Pauline Oliveros, this program will feature innovative uses of the instrument, such as four detuned soprano saxophones, alongside lush tonal harmonies.
Performance selections will be announced from the stage (all music composed by saajtak).
