Eric Dudley in Conversation and Concert with Meredith Monk
January 19 @ 4:00 pm
For the first time, SFCMP brings together incoming Artistic Director Eric Dudley and maverick composer Meredith Monk for an evening of stimulating performances and conversations.
Our in the LABORATORY series showcases large-scale contemporary classical works that push the boundaries of the concert format and experience. In this concert, John Zorn’s Cobra and Frederic Rzewski’s Les Moutons de Panurge engage the large-ensemble energies of the performers to create unheard-of possibilities. Led by Grammy-nominated SFCMP percussionist and frequent Zorn collaborator William Winant, the performers are prompted to execute different instrumental techniques, sonic textures, or playing styles in various ensemble formations, resulting in a dynamic and often surprising real-time musical compositions.
