Time: 13:00 - 13:30
Anne La Berge (flute & electronics), Michael Bonaventure (organ) and Robert van Heumen (laptop-instrument) will perform three compositions from the theatrical concert To Whom this Power.
Untitled For Anne (2016 revised version, Robert van Heumen) flute and live electronics: Anne La Berge
Untitled for Anne is a game of power between the flute and the computer. The software is directly controlled by the acoustic input of the flute in an attempt to break down the traditional power of the electro-acoustic composer. Control is in the hands of the player, but the computer can take over if not restrained properly. The work consist of notated and improvised music with live processing and sampling of the flute. Untitled For Anne is an attempt to return the initiative to the performer.
Dakota (2016 revised verison, Anne La Berge) organ: Michael Bonaventure | laptop-instrument: Robert van Heumen | flute and electronics: Anne La Berge
The North Dakota oil boom is an ongoing period of rapidly expanding oil extraction from the Bakken formation in the state of North Dakota. New technologies for horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing have opened up vast areas of land for drilling, turning this land into something very different than the farmland that it once was and forces us to consider the economic benefits against the environmental and cultural costs of an oil boom.
Dakota was happy.
Her beauty abundant.
Her honor was fragile
And later defiled.
Sanctuary (2015, Michael Bonaventure) organ and electronics: Michael Bonaventure
