Polytope coming in March

Excerpt from Polytope:

I’m very excited to announce the premiere of Polytope this coming March! Polytope is a multimedia microtonal performance for MIDI quartet.

To perform Polytope, I’ll be joined by Erin Barnes, Cory Beers, and Andrew Lessoman.

Performed entirely in darkness, it’s a mesmerizing dance of silhouettes of fingers over colorful glowing MIDI buttons, captured on live feed video and projected large and bright as a moving, visual score. Polytope is rhythmically charged in the vein of musical minimalists such as Phillip Glass, Steve Reich, or Arnold Dreyblatt, but harmonically inspired by the microtonal explorations of James Tenney, Erv Wilson, or Harry Partch. The multimedia style of presentation is somewhere between a string quartet, Kraftwerk, James Turrell, and an Indonesian dhalang (master shadow puppeteer).

Three performances of Polytope are scheduled in March:

  • Automata, Los Angeles, March 18
  • Wayward Music Series, Good Shepherd Chapel in Seattle, March 23
  • Center for New Music in San Francisco, March 25.
