Past Event Sound Series: Beyond: Concert 2 featuring LOADBANG
The second concert of the Beyond Microtonal Musical Festival and Symposium features the composer/curator of the Harry Partch Instrumentarium Charles Corey and violinist/improviser Luke Fitzpatrick performing Partch’s Barstow and Li Po Settings and the powerhouse quartet LOADBANG performing works by Brook, Beglarian, Edgerton and others.
This season’s Festival and Symposium focuses on the theme of “Cultural Roots/Cultural Intersections” and explores compelling microtonal music that travels across cultural boundaries.Through three days of concerts and symposia, Beyond addresses the nature and current status of “microtonal music” and especially its relationship to World Music as well as the diversity within our own community.
