Tonight we are presenting three musicians from Miami and New York performing on guitars, bass and electronics. Federico Bonacossa’s curiosity about the current guitar lead him to create a national call for works. Out of 100 submissions, Bonacossa selected 4 finalists. Kyong Mee Choi’s It only needs to be seen (one of the selected pieces that is presented tonight) was inspired by the Steve Hagen’s saying, “Truth does not need any explanation. It only needs to be seen. The only way we can be free in each moment is to become what the moment is.” Choi wants the audience to experience being in the moment through the stream of sound that does not need any explanation but only needs to be heard. Bonacossa’s Sequitur VIII will feature a canonic layering of real-time audio processing in MAX/MSP. The Miami-based up-and-coming bassist and composer Kyle Motle will join Bonacossa in Tragos for double bass and live electronics that explores scratch tones and open strings. Bryan Jacobs’s Trigger will investigate the idea of presets in music. In fact, there are as many triggered presets as there are notes in this work! Compact Scecenes will feature Jacobs on guitar while operating fixed and live electronics. “This piece has a little to do with Milli Vanilli mouthing the words and a little to do with extending the acoustic tradition.”BJBe sure to tell them Soul Of Miami sent you!
