Check out new works for electronics and live performers by participants in this year’s Soundvoice program.
This set of new pieces, composed through the Soundvoice workshop, will be brought to life by C4NM Ensemble-in-Residence, Animals and Giraffes (saxophone and voice duo), plus special guest Matthew Creer (electronics), and the composers themselves!
|Animals and Giraffes is an ongoing collaboration between writer/performer Claudia La Rocco and saxophonist/composer Phillip Greenlief. The project explores the intersection of text and sound, and features a changing roster featuring some of the finest bay area improvisers.|
|Matthew Creer is a composer and electronic musician. He uses computer coding languages developed for musicians and artists to write pieces for video, often via social media platforms such as Instagram and YouTube. He also performs live computer music and has written acoustic music for performers such as Ryan Ross Smith, Crystal Pascucci and the Eclipse Quartet. Creer has been teaching in the music department of City College of San Francisco since 2014.|
Soundvoice is a five-session workshop in which participants unleash their “sound voice” and inner artist by engaging in the process of creativity held May 2 through June 1, 2018 at the Center for New Music. The workshops explore new electronic music as a way to express personal and community narratives, and are offered to adult residents of San Francisco’s Tenderloin, Sixth Street Corridor, and Mid-Market neighborhoods.
