Music for Your Inbox: Jennifer Bewerse & Jocy de Oliveira

Last April, composer Jennifer Bewerse mailed feminist violin duo, The Furies, a piece written on a repurposed wedding thank you card. In it, she asks them to tell stories of “a blossom, blooming, or the color red” while beating their chests. For this month’s performance video, The Furies premiere Jennifer’s Bloom between two arrangements of songs from Brazilian composer Jocy de Oliveira’s subversive first album “A Música Século XX de Jocy” (Jocy’s Twentieth Century Music). A pioneer storyteller, Oliveira’s avant-garde Bossa Nova transforms the Brazilian muse—beautiful, young, and rich—into a full person by humanizing by her mortality. To deepen the storytelling,  MFYI commissioned an art print postcard from Yasmine Nasser Diaz, a multidisciplinary artist whose practice navigates overlapping tensions around religion, gender, and third-culture identity.

Music for Your Inbox: Southland Ensemble plays William Roper

January 23, 2021

7:40 AM

musicforyourinbox.com

How much of a nudge does a performer need in order to launch a musical idea? What is too little information or too much? In an effort to play with this idea, William Roper composed Pigs, Pigs, Oh! Those Tasty Pigs, a deck of cards with symbols from everyday life that act as improvisational prompts. In this video, Southland Ensemble interprets these cards by recording their sounds and actions in an otherwise empty space. The final result is a surprise to everyone—the correlations and coincidences that arise feel like magic. This month’s art print postcard, Iowan Idyll, is also by Bill, a skilled multi-disciplinary artist. The performance and postcard combine to give a more complete perspective of his artistic point of view.

Living Music: Pirate Radio Edition

May 27, 2020

1:00 AM

Facebook Live

Description:I am beyond excited to share that on Tuesday, May 26th, Aperture Duo will premiere Missed for two live streaming performers by ... me! Missed is the 11th a series of Postal Pieces I've been making over the past two months (an homage to James Tenney's Postal Pieces from 1960-71), where each piece is inspired by the person I mail it to. Missed looks at how close friends and collaborators connect (and can't connect) over live streaming: what the internet can and can't replace.    

 

Catch it, along with a piece by Nick Deyoe, on Living Music: Pirate Radio Edition, a quarantine variety show that features artists from around the globe, performing and chatting from their homes, streamed on Facebook Live every Tuesday and Thursday night hosted by Peabody Award-winner Nadia Sirota.

HEAR NOW Festival answers a two-fold need; for LA composers to be featured in a professional setting with superb performances; and for the audience to begin to know what LA composers are writing. Since 2011 HEAR NOW has introduced nearly 150 new and recent works by 113 individual Los Angeles-based composers. Numerous composers — emerging and mid-career — have been brought to both critical and public attention, and HEAR NOW has served as an incubator for the discovery of new talent.
