Bearthoven Buckshot

Night4-Bearthoven

The eccentrically-named trio of piano, percussion, and bass known as Bearthoven takes the stage with a widely-varied program of new music that challenges the notion that the instrumentation makes the music. The evening begins with the flourescences and electronics of Jonathan Nangle’s lambent untitled (after Dan Flavin) and continues with the improvisational talents of Amanda Schoof as she joins Bearthoven for her graphic score, Intimate Addictions. David Alan Broome’s atomistic Ominousty scatters glitches from Billy Joel’s “Honesty” into millions of pieces, while Fjóla Evans’s Shoaling rumbles in murmuring and growing streams. MATA’s own Du Yun performs a new work with bass, and the evening concludes with the UK’s Adam de la Cour’s MATA-commissioned Corporate Talent Factor’s Next Top Idol! a talent competition, the likes of which has never been seen on these shores.

DavidBroome

A versatile and imaginative pianist/composer, David Broome has a playful taste for all genres of music.  As a creator of original works, David produces musical worlds that investigate sound and the act of performing with humor and wide-eyed curiosity.  As a widely sought after interpreter of new music, David is dedicated to presenting music that is quirky and original.  He takes pleasure in finding familiar moments within the unfamiliar.  Like seeing faces in clouds, he accords relationships to the abstract that are unintended and cogent.

David’s compositions have been presented by the MATA Festival, Ensemble Adapter, Qubit, the Boulder Fringe Festival, HI-Fi New Music, Red Light New Music, and the 92nd St. Y’s Fridays @ Noon.  He has also received support from the Argosy Foundation, the Yvar Mikhashoff Trust for New Music, NYSCA, the A. Lindsay and Olive B. O’Conner Foundation, and Meet the Composer.  He has participated in artist residencies at the Banff Center, the Seedlot Project, and the Rensing Center.  David holds a Master’s of Music from the Manhattan School of Music and a Bachelor’s of Music from Towson University where he studied with pianists – Phillip Kawin, Anthony de Mare and Reynaldo Reyes.
