Programming





Designed for the 2017/18 wasteLAnd Concert Season, REFLECTING is a program that explores different kids of musical reflection. Throughout these pieces, the performers's bodies touch, imitate, sense, and are mirrored in physical and virtual spaces. The effect is a kind of dance between sound and gesture, and a chance to build empathy through shared space.


Featuring:

Pauline Oliveros: Bye Bye Butterfly
Mayke Nas: Digit No. 2
Natacha Diels: 2.5 Nightmares for Jessie
Michiko Saiki: a…i…u…e…o…
Annie Hui-Hsin Hsieh: The thin air between skins

Autoduplicity presents their second concert exploration in Machaut + Rauschen, juxtaposing Guillaume de Machaut's ballade, “Dame, ne regardez pas” with several of Peter Ablinger's Instrumente und Rauschen and the world premiere of Ablinger's Kreuze for solo cello and electronics. Leaping from the simple purity of a single melody to the “everything always” of white noise, Machaut + Rauschen explores the hidden complexity in simple sounds and hidden sounds within masses of complex noise. Listening at these extremes reveals how deceptive the very ideas of simple or complex can be.

Autoduplicity's debut concert is an exploration of music for bodies and speech - our shared instruments - and investigates how these ordinary sounds can be transformed into powerful musical ideas reflective of the human experience. The program also probes themes of blurred identities and realities, questions of sanity, the movements of our bodies, and the rhythms of our speech.


Featuring:

Peter Ablinger: Das Wirkliche als Vorgestelltes (The Real As Imaginary)
Jackson MacLow: Asymmetries 94 and 259
Mayke Nas: Digit No. 2
Vinko Globokar: ?Corporel
Samuel Beckett: Footfalls
