Gassmann Electronic Music Series

loadbang

 

Friday, March 2, 2018

8:00 p.m.

Winifred Smith Hall

New York City-based new music chamber group loadbang is building a new kind of music for mixed ensemble of trumpet, trombone, bass clarinet, and baritone voice. Since their founding in 2008, they have been praised as “cultivated” by The New Yorker, “an extra-cool new music group” and “exhilarating” by the Baltimore Sun, “inventive” by the New York Times, and a “formidable new-music force” by TimeOutNY. Their unique lung-powered instrumentation has provoked diverse responses from composers, resulting in a repertoire comprising an inclusive picture of composition today. They will be presenting works written exclusively for them by composers Lei Liang, Alexandre Lunsqui, Reiko Futing, Scott Worthington, Scott Wollschleger, and by ensemble members Carlos Cordeiro and William Lang.

Six years ago the UCI Symphony Orchestra, led by Maestro Tucker, adopted the Santa Ana High School (SAHS) Symphony Orchestra. The partnership was designed to build awareness of the university experience to make it a tangible goal for the SAHS students; increase access to arts resources; and cultivate engaged young artists, the Trevor School students, who will become involved citizens in their communities not just in the arts. The SAHS wind and string ensembles will perform and then the UCI and SAHS orchestras will combine for a side-by-side piece.
