TRANSIT presents works by Tristan Perich, Lesley Flanigan and Daniel Wohl that reinterprets the boundries of electro-accoustic music.
Woven, a 20 minute piece by Tristan Perich written for the TRANSIT ensemble is the creation of a new system of amplification that opens up new timbral possibilities and allows an acoustic ensemble to be treated in an electronic way. The result is a new experience in electro-acoustic music– a piece that melds the organic comfort of acoustic sound with the precision of music-generating circuitry.
Expand/Release is a project between Lesley Flanigan and the TRANSIT ensemble that incorporates hand-built speaker feedback instruments as well as traditional acoustic instruments and amplified singing. While Lesley Flanigan’s previous work has focused primarily on sound installation and performances for vocalists and feedback, Expand/Release represents her most substantial collaboration with an instrumental ensemble to date. The piece also maintains an element of performance for the composer, who interacts with the ensemble throughout the piece in various roles including as a vocalist.
Corps Exquis is a special project between the TRANSIT collective, Daniel Wohl, and six emerging artists based in New York City. This multimedia piece revels in a post-modern digital era approach to new music, incorporating elements of chamber-rock shows and electro-noise. An Exquisite Corpse process was used for structuring the work and in establishing the relationship between the musical components. By collectively assembling the work using this surrealist mechanism, the artists were able to produce a work that is cohesive, while maintaining the individuality of each creative voice.
