TAK Ensemble with guest, Brandon Lopez
About the artists:
TAK ensemble is Laura Cocks, flute; Madison Greenstone, clarinet; Charlotte Mundy, voice; Marina Kifferstein, violin; Ellery Trafford, percussion. TAK ensemble, described as one of the most prominent ensembles in the United States practicing truly experimental music" (I Care if you Listen), plays three works: Empty and/or Church of Plenty by Brandon Lopez, Second Nightmare for Kiku by Natacha Diels and The Empress Negligee and Leopard Queen Dream by Charlotte Mundy. Lopez is noted across the US and Europe for his highly innovative and often intensely visceral approach to music making. Empty and/or Church of Plenty (2019) is a democratic work created collaboratively with TAK, with each individual playing a part in the works creation. The resultant sound-world is iridescent and murky, ecstatic and foreboding. Natacha Diels is one of the key visionaries behind the New Discipline aesthetic in contemporary music. Her Second Nightmare for Kiku (2013/2021) blends absurd electronic sounds and physical gestures with relentless rhythmic pulses to create a truly mind-bending musical experience. Mundys The Empress Negligee and Leopard Queen Dream (2022) is a surreal blend of experimental theater and microtonal art song.
TAK Ensemble will be joined by Brandon Lopez for the performance of Empty and/or Church of Plenty (2019).
