Body to Noise: The Music of Amadeus Regucera, John MacCallum, and Toshio Hosokawa, feat. Stacey Pelinka, flutes

$15 General, $10 Members
Buy Online
Curator: Kurt Rohde
Taken as an evening-length experience, the pieces of Body to Noise present diverse ways in which the work of the physical human body can be translated to sound and how music can shape or be shaped by the body. At the center of this exploration is Bay Area-based flutist, Stacey Pelinka who has performed and championed contemporary music by emerging and established composers of our time through her work with the Left Coast Chamber Ensemble and the Eco Ensemble. In Body to Noise, she presents works by composers Amadeus Julian Regucera, John, MacCallum, and Toshio Hosokawa – music that draws on the various aspects of the body’s physiology – and maps it to music.
