Tonight in New York, Voice / Media / Theatre is Qubit’s season finale party, proposing the powerful combination of voice, instruments, electronic sound, and video that explores dramaturgy mediated and mediatized.
Featuring soprano soloist Charlotte Mundy and her fellow performers in the TAK ensemble, we invite audience members to listen, interact, and enjoy cocktails inspired by the program. Qubit will also be joined for the evening by Alexandra Albert, a celebrated fixture of the acclaimed Toronto restaurant and bar scene.
With work by Jagoda Szmytka, Marina Kifferstein, David Bird, and Kaija Saariaho, the event is also a preview of major new works by Alec Hall, FLUFFER KING, and Aaron Einbond, Hidden in Plain Sight. Each are being developed for a larger Qubit and TAK collaboration, “Music//Theater//Now” in early 2018.
Cannot wait to share this program tonight in Basel with Peyee Chen, Ellen Fallowfield, Stephen Menotti, Chikako Morishita, Yukiko Watanabe, Aaron Cassidy, Eric Oña, Richard Barrett, and Klaus Huber in music theater of miniatures around the death and life of words: A Word is Dead – Two New and Peyee Chen
Einbond’s Resistance (2012) opens the disc with barely more than the noise of air passing through the bass clarinet’s deep tube, and even this is only gradually augmented with the sounds of keys and, eventually, tones. Yet the work is also infused with the sounds of political protest – marches recorded in New York in 2011–12. Played through a speaker in the clarinet’s bell, these slowly emerge in their own right, a weird progeny of the instrument itself.

Honored to make a brief appearance in this authoritative book by @michael.edgerton thanks to my work with the dazzling @amanda.deboerbartlett!
Ainsi, nous sommes … décontenancés par les bruitages de String trio d’Aaron Einbond évoquant vraisemblablement le monde sonore de la forêt. Notons pour cette dernière pièce l’usage étrange du violoncelle couché à l’horizontal sur une caisse et considéré comme un instru- ment percussif.
