That Which Remains

MATA’s second night is a movement into the nearness of origins. The unhewn sounds of em_bruto is our Big Bang: a multimedia soundscape by Brazil’s André Damião Bandeira that tears away perceptions of music and the musical experience; stirrings come forth in Natacha Diels’s exploration of grammatology: A is for Alphabet; the sublime alchemy of Canary Islands’ native Rubens Askenar Garcia Hernandez’s El Puerperio reframes the possibilities of the piano; while a new work from MATA’s own Alex Weiser restores our confidence in resonance and harmony. Capping off the evening is a world premiere MATA commission by Carolyn Chen for ensemble and video (Relationships with Gravity) that restores our faith in reason.
