SCENATET: Wow and Flutter

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

 

Denmark’s buzzy SCENATET makes its official New York debut with a potent program that belies the cozy Danish stereotype of ‘Hygge.’ Along with the twitchy improvised grooves of Yu Oda and the strobe-funk theatrics of Kaj Duncan David’s Computer Music, highlights include the first of this year’s MATA commissions, a world premiere by Eric Wubbels. Also on tap: the hermetic canons of Daniel Tacke’s musica ricercata | musica poetica, Turkish composer Murat Çolak’s Orchid, an octet by rising Danish star Christian Winther Christensen, and German composer Martin Grütter’s Messer Engle Atem Kling (Cleaver Angel Breathing ‘Ding’).

with support from the Danish Composers´ Society´s Production Pool/KODA´s Cultural Funds.

Daniel Tacke

Friday, March 3rd, 2017

 

The music of Daniel Tacke is focused on expanded vocabularies of sound and structure growing from explorations of instrumental idiom, the poetics of notation, embodiment and memory in the experience of listening, and intersections between contemporary and historical practices of composition and performance.  He is a member of the American Composers Alliance, and his music has been performed and recorded in the United States and abroad by numerous individuals and ensembles.  He studied composition at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music and the University of California at San Diego and has held professorships at Oberlin Conservatory, Arkansas State University, and Hillsdale College, teaching music theory, composition, harpsichord, and directing performances of contemporary and historical music.
