Performs the music of William Brittelle and Mick Barr
Led by artistic director and cellist Clarice Jensen, the American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME) is dedicated to the outstanding performance of masterworks from the 20th and 21st centuries, and the music of American composers in particular. This evening will bring together two distinct programs of music written for ACME—the world premiere of a new piece commissioned from Mick Barr, known for his relentless speed and agility on guitar and avant-garde compositions; and Loving the Chambered Nautilus, a series of works by electro-acoustic artist William Brittelle that merge the classical chamber music tradition with electronic retro-futuristic pop gestures, that will be accompanied live with original video by LoVid, an interdisciplinary artist duo composed of Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus. The evening will celebrate the work’s CD release on New Amsterdam Records. ACME players for this concert are Caleb Burhans (violin, banjo, and voice), Clarice Jensen (cello), Eric Lamb (flute), Megan Levin (harp), Ben Russell (violin), Nadia Sirota (viola) and Chris Thompson (percussion).
Music programs at The Kitchen are made possible with generous support from The Amphion Foundation, the Mary Flagler Cary Charitable Trust, The Aaron Copland Fund for Music, and with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency.
