Livewire 7: The New York School and Beyond

The New York School, which included composers John Cage, Morton Feldman, Christian Wolff and Earle Brown (as well as pianist David Tudor) flourished in the 1950s and 60s, revolutionizing contemporary Western music and creating connections with dance, theatre, visual arts and poetry that continue to influence artists today. Over a span of four days, Livewire 7 explores music by these composers and explores “the Beyond,” with performances of works by figures such as Bunita Marcus, Ben Johnston, Toshi Ichiyanagi, James Tenney, Thomas DeLio, Christopher Shultis, and others. Prominently representing “the Beyond” will be featured guest composer/violinist Malcolm Goldstein, whose “soundings” improvisations have received international acclaim for extending the range of tonal/sound-texture possibilities of the violin.
