LotUS performs duos by co-curators Ken Ueno and David Smooke, Sofia Gubaidulina’s masterful trio Quasi Hoquetus, and improvisations.
The League of the Unsound Sound (LotUS) is a group of musicians dedicated to exploring experimental music in all its variations. LotUS are performers and composers and improvisers.
Core members choose the repertoire and the modes of improvisation, and invite others to join us in these events. The repertoire of the League comprises contemporary music by international composers. Some pieces have jagged edges. Some pieces are improvisations. Some pieces incorporate movement. Some pieces are microtonal. Some pieces are repetitive.
LotUS core members include: Tim Feeney (percussion), Michael Formanek (bass/composer), Michael Harley (bassoon), Courtney Orlando (violin), David Smooke (composer/toy piano), Wendy Richman (viola), and Shirley Yoo (piano).
