Livewire 4: Fuse Ensemble
Fine Arts Recital Hall
Livewire presents Fuse Ensemble, a concept-based new music/new media ensemble, performing Voices of the Depths, Musings on C.G. Jung’s Red Book, with music by Eve Beglarian, Fernando Benadon, Gina Biver, Patrick Burke, Ian Boddy and Adam Kendall, a video installation by Norbert Francis Attard, as well as the poetry of Colette Inez.
Fuse Ensemble presents a new concept each season, giving voice to new music composers and creating musical happenings with visual elements of live, interactive video and/or kinetic installations. The musicians of Fuse perform on an eclectic mix of flute, clarinet, electric violin, electric guitar, cello, piano, electronic playback, percussion and invented instruments. Linked by the insane possibilities of software such as MaxMSP/Jitter and Processing, sometimes using sensors on the musicians and live interactive cameras on stage, the artists create an experience that fuses sound, video and humans into a liquefied state and gives each concept a setting—a visual and kinetic environment to experience it in that furthers communication and unifies the concept.
Fuse Ensemble is: Gina Biver, composer, director, electric guitar, electronics/laptop; Pam Clem, cello; Ethan Foote, contrabass, Martha Haines, electronic keyboards; Greg Hiser, violin; Jenny Lapple, flute; Marshall Maley, percussion; Ina Mirtcheva, piano, Angela Murakami, clarinet.
