12 Nights: Cellotronic Games, premiere. Jason Calloway, cello and Juraj Kojs, electronics
September 6, 2014
At the Bakehouse Blue Stage

Jason Calloway, cello and Juraj Kojs, electronics pair to present a program of newly commissioned works by Adrian Democ, Charles Mason, Ethan Greene, Jorge Gomez, Lanier Sammons, Patrick O'Malley and Paul Turowski that engage music and technologies in game-inspired multimedia interactions. 

In the past 50 years, gaming has become a multicultural phenomenon transforming the ways we play, work, and explore.  We learn, exercise, and entertain (exertain) ourselves and others via games.  The analog and digital platforms with their tools and controllers have been continuously expanded to facilitate access to novel stimulations and content.  New rules, challenges, and awards have tantalized growing generations of players, engaging them in competitive interactions. The arts in their multitude of expressions have been at the axis of game design and practice. This program showcases just that: a variety of approaches in musicalizing and gaming.

About the artists:
Juraj Kojs (Slovakia/USA). Miami New Times described his muscle-powered multimedia Neraissance as "striking and unforgettable," and MiamiArtZine called his Signals "enthralling and immersive." Kojs’s commissions include Meet the Composer, Harvestworks and Miami Theater Center. Kojs published in Organized Sound, Leonardo Music Journal and Journal of New Music Research.  Kojs directs Foundation for Emerging Technologies and Arts (FETA). He holds a Ph.D in Composition and Computer Technologies from University of Virginia and taught at Medialogy Aalborg University, Yale University, University of Virginia and Miami International University. Kojs is an Assistant Professor of Professional Practice at University of Miami's Frost School of Music. 

Jason Calloway, cellist and director of the FIU New Music Ensemble, has performed to acclaim throughout North America, Europe, and the Middle East as soloist and chamber musician. He has appeared at festivals including Lucerne, Spoleto, Darmstadt, and Casals, and gave his Carnegie Hall recital debut under the auspices of Artists International. A devoted advocate for new music, Mr. Calloway has premiered hundreds of works and collaborated intensively with many of today's leading composers, including Birtwistle, Carter, and Lachenmann. He values his work with Pierre Boulez and the Ensemble InterContemporain, and is also artistic director of Shir Ami, an ensemble devoted to Jewish art music. Mr. Calloway currently serves as cellist of the Amernet String Quartet, in which capacity he is Artist-in-Residence at Florida International University, where he teaches cello and chamber music.

12 Nights: Ian Rosenbaum, percussion and electronics
September 27, 2014
At the Bakehouse Blue Stage

This program of music for percussion and electronics is centered around Christopher Cerrone's 22-minute work Memory Palace. Scored for found and homemade percussion instruments ranging from tuned beer bottles to 17 planks of wood and accompanied by field recordings made by the composer, Memory Palace is a beautiful exploration of the sonic possibilities of percussion. The program also includes Celestial Sphere, a work for live marimba and pre-recorded marimbas written for me last year by David Crowell, Simple Songs of Birth and Return for mbira and electronics by Nathan Davis, 21 for marimba and electronics and Stop Speaking for snare drum and electronics, both by Andy Akiho and the world premiere of a new work written expressly for this event by Juraj Kojs.

About the artist:
Praised for his “excellent” and “precisely attuned” performances by the New York Times, percussionist Ian David Rosenbaum has developed a musical breadth far beyond his years. He made his Kennedy Center debut in 2009 and later that year garnered a special prize created for him at the Salzburg International Marimba Competition. Last season, Mr. Rosenbaum joined the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s CMS Two program as only the second percussionist they have selected in their history. He has recorded for the Bridge, Innova and Naxos labels and is on the faculty of the Dwight School in Manhattan. For more information, please visit iandavidrosenbaum.com.

12 Nights: Living Earth Show, guitar, percussion and electronics
October 25, 2014
At the Bakehouse Blue Stage

The Living Earth Show will be presenting premiere performances of New York composer Jacob Cooper's Pasturing (Reprise) and Philadelphian Jonathan Pfeffer's The Bell, The Ball, The Bow-tie, and the Boot, two pieces that were written for the ensemble's 2015 collaborative production with Post:Ballet. These works utilize electric guitar, percussion, samples, and other electronic sounds to create woks that dialogue with the classical tradition and contemporary culture in equal measure.

About the artists:
Called “a vanguard effort of new chamber music” and “energetically provocative” by The San Francisco Examiner, “a much sought-after presence on the indie classical scene” by The San Francisco Classical Voice, and “a fully distorted perpetual motion of awesome” by I Care If You Listen, The Living Earth Show – electric guitarist Travis Andrews and percussionist Andy Meyerson – has developed a reputation as one of the most versatile and virtuosic contemporary chamber groups on the west coast. Memorizing every work it performs, The Living Earth Show thrives on pushing the boundaries of technical and artistic possibility in its presentation of commissioned electro-acoustic chamber music.
