Boston Court's Fall Music Series generously sponsored by Elaine Kramer and Al Latham.

Boston Court's Fall Music Series is made possible in part by the Pasadena Arts & Culture Commission and the City of Pasadena Cultural Affairs Division.

You'll hear music made from strange loops, echoes and recombinations, including Pierre Jodlowski's multilayered Série Blanche for piano and electronics; Ingram Marshall's meditative Soe-pa for classical guitar and digital delay; and Alexandre François and Elaine Chew's Mimi (Multimodal Interaction for Musical Improvisation), an innovative and interactive system for human-machine improvisation that intelligently recombines an improviser's creations as impetus for new improvisations.  You'll also hear music that evokes and harnesses the raw power of nature, including Ben Hackbarth's ethereal open end for vibraphone and electronics; Veronika Krausas' tempestuous Waterland for narrator and electronics, with video by Quintan Ana Wikswo and text by Andre Alexis; and Morton Subotnick's monumental The Key to Songs for chamber ensemble and electronics.
