We are proud to announce that the 2016-17 Ensemble in Residence at the Center for New Music will be:
2016-17 Ensemble in Residence
Called “a vanguard effort of new chamber music” by the San Francisco Examiner, “transcendent” by the Charleston City Paper, and “a fully distorted perpetual motion of awesome” by I Care If You Listen, The Living Earth Show–a Bay Area new music initiative–exists as a megaphone and canvas for some of the world’s most progressive artists. Comprised of electric guitarist Travis Andrews and percussionist Andy Meyerson, the ensemble commissions, curates, organizes, and promotes these composers through challenging them to realize their most ambitious creative visions. Whether through live performance (in the form of multi-media productions of commissioned, evening-length compositions), audio and video recordings, or educational outreach, the ensemble crafts musical experiences that engage both its collaborators and its audience.
Stay tuned for announcements of Ensemble in Residence activities featuring TLES
including a reading of new works, community performances, and a concert at the Center in September 2017. In the meantime, those of you who visit the Center at 55 Taylor Street are likely to run into Andy and Travis in the coming months!
