Grisey, Oliveros & Sciarrino

Posted by on May 13, 2022 in Past Performances | 0 comments

SFSOUNDGROUP performs three iconic chamber music works from the late 20th century:

GÉRARD GRISEY – Talea (1986)
PAULINE OLIVEROS – The Inner​/​Outer Sound Matrix (for sfSound) (2007)
SALVATORE SCIARRINO – Lo Spazio Inverso (1985)

The “house band” for the Mosswood Sound Series, SFSOUNDGROUP is a unique collection of performer-composers that have presented their own compositions, improvisations, new commissions, electronic music, and standard avant-garde repertoire for over two decades. With a mix of works from the European, American, and contemporary Californian avant-garde, their concerts explore the continuum between notated composition and free improvisation, often sounding more “electronic” than “acoustic.”

Composer Marc Evanstein’s composition based on pollen data from a sediment core in Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve. Through this translation from data to music, listeners are offered a window into the dynamic and interconnected quality of the natural world, and the way in which this balance has been impacted by human activities over the last 120 years. Watch the discussion and performance here.

sfSound performs Lucier

Posted by on Mar 12, 2022 in Past Performances | 0 comments

We celebrate the music of ALVIN LUCIER, an American composer of experimental music and sound installations that explore acoustic phenomena and auditory perception. Lucier was a member of the influential Sonic Arts Union, which included Robert Ashley, David Behrman, and Gordon Mumma. Much of his work is influenced by science and explores the physical properties of sound itself: resonance of spaces, phase interference between closely tuned pitches, and the transmission of sound through physical media.
