Come hear the culmination of a two-week collaboration and residency at The MilkBar between composer Linda Bouchard and the talented and unique Addleds musicians Kyle Bruckmann, oboe/english horn; Tony Dryer, double bass; and Jacob Felix Heule, percussion, in an unusual trio combination*.
Known for timbral and textural extremes of distended instrumental technique, Addleds, in its full quartet formation, will open the evening with mastery and abandon, playing a set of improvisational and open-ended compositions.
The second half will be devoted to the premiere of “All Caps No Space,” the concert version, conceived by Linda Bouchard. The composer harnesses the creative power of the Addleds improvisers through a graphic score, stock and prerecorded material, and live processing. “All Caps No Space” explores the amplified solitude we experience within the barrage of information that besieges us.
* The fourth Addleds musician, koto player Kanoko Nishi, was on maternity leave during The MilkBar residency and “All Caps No Space” rehearsals.
The audience is invited to meet the artists after the performance over a glass of wine.
This concert is a co-production by C4NM and NEXMAP, and is made possible in part by a grant from the Zellerbach Family Foundation.
