“Network is one of the best organizations in Philadelphia for not only performing
new music but fostering the culture of new artists and brand new music that’s literally
hot off the presses.” Melissa Dunphy, composer
PHILADELPHIA – Network for New Music, the award-winning chamber ensemble dedicated to commissioning and performing works by living composers, is pleased to announce the opening concert in its 2012-2013 concert season, ELECTRONIC.NNM.
THE VOICE ELECTRIC, presented by the Annenberg Center as part of their “By Local” series, is a collaboration between Network for New Music and Voice of this Generation, a collective of young composers and musicians interested in pushing the boundaries of composition and the concert experience. Featuring six young composers with Philadelphia connections and an interest in musical experimentation, they’ve written new works that blend acoustic instruments, electronics, voices and original poetry, in a concert that showcases the inventive use of electronic sounds, creating and performing music that extends the expressive range of traditional instruments.
Network’s incomparable ensemble musicians perform five world premieres and a Philadelphia premiere on this program, which also includes settings of original poetry by young Philadelphia poets Ashley Chang, Randall C. Couch, Lily Kass, and Lauren Rile Smith. The performance will be followed by a Q & A for the audience with the composers and the poets. See below for more information about the composers.
WHEN: Friday, October 12, 2012 at 7:30 PM; Q & A with composers and poets follows the performance.
WHERE: Harold Prince Theater at the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts
3680 Walnut St., Philadelphia
