Music exploring the keeping of time.
50 years after its first performance, Wavefield Ensemble presents the second performance of Steve Reich's Pulse Music (1969). Originally created at Bell Labs with an instrument Reich called the "Phase Shifting Pulse Gate" the piece was the analog electronic outgrowth of his acoustic phase pieces, bridging the gap between such works as the more intuitively structured Piano Phase and the more notationally oriented Music for Pieces of Wood. The instrument has been digitally recreated by Ezra Teboul, for this performance, along with a new work by Teboul for his digital phase shifting pulse gate. Also on the program are the US premiere of Ann Cleare's I am not a clockmaker either. (2009) for piano and electronics, Angelica Negron's Hush (2012) for flute and electronics, and George Aperghis' classic work for solo percussion: Le corps a corp.
Featuring Wavefiled musicians Roberta Michel, Julia DenBoer, and Dennis Sullivan. With Ezra Teboul.
