New Albion Festival: Contemporary Compositions at Bard College Summerscape

img  Tobias
Highlights of the program will includean opening night with Margaret Leng Tan and former Glass Orchestra member Miguel Frasconi exploring the world of John Cage’s “Suite for Toy Piano” – or a selection of minimalist music, ranging from John Adams to Ingram Marshall on August 8th. The latter is seminal to the new Albion festival, as his “In Fog Tropes” was the piece “that put New Albion records on the map” as the organisors put it.

From the ranks of musicians you may only remotely have heard of, we can recommend performances by long-time tokafi favourites Jeffrey Roden and Erdem Helvacioglu. While Roden’s subtle Bass miniatures, tresspassing the moonlit zone between Jazz , the Avantgarde and Zen, will form an integral part of an entire evening’s worth of solo instrumentalists, the organic Guitar textures of Helvacioglu will be featured next to other artists from the New Albion roster, whose principal or exclusive domain is electronic music: Slow Six, Richard Teitelbaum, Stephen Vitiello and Carl Stone.
