"Beliebig Fullen: Fill as Desired"--Amy x Neuburg and Solstice Jan 23, 24, 29
Date: January 13, 2010
Location: California, USA
Choir type: Chamber Choirs and Vocal Ensembles
National top three a cappella champions Solstice will be joining award-winning avant-pop composer, vocalist and looping artist Amy X Neuburg to Sing Neuburg. The work premiered to great acclaim at the Jewish Music Festival. The Oberlin-trained Neuburg had been commissioned by the Festival to create new music based on recipies that prisoners at the Terezin concentration camp exchanged. Sounds depressing, right? You’re cueing the violins, right? You can turn off the soundtrack to Schindler’s List, and prepare to be surprised by some impressively original, affecting, funny and important music. Amy X Neuburg is truly a composer to watch! So what else can I tell you, you have to come see this show! Amy X Neuburg will present her 30-minute “Fill as Desired” (“Beliebig Füllen”) song cycle for female voices with live looping electronics. Solstice ensemble will open the evening with a set of their beautiful and powerful a cappella world music, including songs in languages such as Finnish, French, Hebrew, Japanese, and Hungarian.
There are 3 performances:
January 23, 8:00 pm, San Geronimo Valley Community Center in
January 24 and January 29th, 8:00 pm, Women on the Way Festival, ODC Theater, San Francisco.
