When we play music live, time becomes our medium. Our relationship to time is ever-changing and rich in metaphor; in the words of Paul Celan, “We shell time and teach it to walk: then time returns to the shell.” Sometimes we play with audience expectations and sense of stability, while other times we must confine our own personal expression to a “pulse” that is larger than us. With this program, we invite our listeners to think about stability and flux, how we “go with the flow” and how we can disrupt it. This program features a collaborative new commission by percussionist, electronic musician, and composer Nate Tucker.
