Talea Ensemble

On Friday, January 9 at 8 p.m. in the CenterStage at the 62 Center for Theatre and Dance, theI/O New Music Fest 2015 presents the Talea Ensemble performingGeorges Aperghiss Happy End.

In music, the term talea (literally, cutting in Latin) refers to collections of repeating, cycling rhythmic patterns. Most often, these patterns are associated with the ars nova period of Medieval music in which new techniques of musical composition were emerging. Talea has also been used in several other traditions including Indian classical music (tala in Sanskrit a wonderful linguistic coincidence), and throughout the ages in Western music, from the composer Guillaume de Machaut in the 14th Century to Olivier Messiaen and Grard Grisey in the 20th Century. This idea of a global, timeless, and cutting-edge musical practice, inventive in its construction and beautiful in its execution, is at the root of the Talea Ensembles artistic direction. The Talea Ensemble is committed to promoting new, groundbreaking music through innovative programming thereby communicating the distinctive voices of composers that deserve to be heard. By commissioning and programming these progressive works alongside the established literature of modern and contemporary repertoire, the ensemble creates a dialogue that challenges the boundaries of music and fosters a greater understanding of the works of today.

Mirror Visions Ensemble

Mirror Visions Ensemble performs at Williams as part of the music department's Visiting Artists Series.

AsThe New York Timesaptly stated in their May 2011 review, Unlike most chamber music enterprises, the Mirror Visions Ensemble is run by singers rather than instrumentalists, and its programs are shaped with an ear to the poetry of song texts rather than to overarching notions of musical style. The initial interest of the ensemble which is comprised of soprano Vira Slywotzky, tenor Scott Murphree and baritone Jesse Blumberg was the back-to-back performance of multiple settings of a single text. This led to programs built around favorite poets: Shakespeare, Verlaine, Dickinson and Heine, in particular.

A voice and a piano master class with Mirror Visions Ensemble is open to the public on September 26, at 4:15pm in Brooks-Rogers Recital Hall.

Goli / Rabbit Rabbit / The Wrong Shapes

A duo of misfit classical musicians with an appetite for world music that has cut its teeth in rock bands, world-folk ensembles, symphony orchestras and the occasional free improv outlet,Goli is madly in love with tango and Bartok. It wrestles with universal subjects while playing the cello and marimba.

Rabbit Rabbit is the song-spinning duo of Carla Kihlstedt and Matthias Bossi. Collectively, this husband and wife team are founding members of the iconic bands Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Tin Hat, 2 Foot Yard, Causing a Tiger, The Book of Knots, and Fred Friths Cosa Brava, and have played with Tom Waits, Mike Patton, Skeleton Key, Madeleine Peyroux, Tracy Chapman, John Vanderslice, St. Vincent, Carla Bozulich, Pretty Lights and The Tiger Lillies. Between them they have written music for the International Contemporary Ensemble, the Bang on a Can All-Stars, the ROVA Saxophone Quartet, InkBoat, the Joe Goode Performance Group, and Team Meat. But Rabbit Rabbit dares to peel back these influences, revealing an intimate and dramatic music all its own. Drawing on a love of art song, folk song, industrial music, improvised music and heart-wrenching balladry, and rendered on a motley assortment of acoustic instruments, its songs are raw and beautiful, sparse and rich, lighthearted and full of pathos.

Rachel and Bo Barringer are The Wrong Shapes, a darkly intriguing male/female cello/guitar/vocal duo combining acoustic and electronic sounds with minimal, compelling songwriting. Bo also plays in Future Carnivores and has, in the past, fronted MEandJOANCOLLINS and The Collisions. Rachel also plays cello in The Grownup Noise and Juventas New Music Ensemble.

GIZMO / Common Thread

Most musicians wait a lifetime to share stages with their musical heroes. Hoping to accomplish such a feat while still racking up college credits would be considered nothing more than a pipe dream. But having performed with such esteemed artists as Meshell Ndegeocello, Talib Kweli, and Victor Wooten as well as serving as music director for such acclaimed artists as Bilal and Lalah Hathaway, its safe to say that 23-year-old bassist Kenneth GIZMO Rodgers has been living that dream for quite some time now.

Drawing on a vast array of musical influences spanning the realms of jazz, pop, funk, rock, Latin, and hip-hop, GIZMO is already creating an impressive sonic landscape.

Common Thread is a collective of like-minded musicians from all over the globe, brought together by a passion for good vibes, inspiring one another, and building musicianship amongst each other. Common Thread was founded in 2013 by bassist Alissia Benveniste, guitarist Maddie Rice, and drummer Amber Baker.
