NOISE-BRIDGE Duo was formed in 2009 when German clarinetist Felix Behringer and American soprano Christie Finn (’07 Music) met in the Contemporary Performance Program at Manhattan School of Music. This soprano-clarinet duo is based in Stuttgart, Germany and dedicated to performing contemporary music and commissioning new works. As of July 2016, thirty pieces from an array of composers internationally have been composed for NOISE-BRIDGE.
Their performance will feature works by Pascal Dusapin, Christopher Goddard, Colin Holter, Chris Fisher-Lochhead, Michael Maierhof, and Stuart Saunders Smith.
Larger projects include the premieres of Azerbaijani composer Rahilia Hasanova’s opera Pendulum Clocks and American composer Matt Aelmore’s theatrical evening Cowboy Rock ‘n Roll U.S.A., both composed for NOISE-BRIDGE. Other special theatrical projects include Liebesverbrechen, or The Crimes of Love, an evening-long theatrical concert, which included both contemporary and Baroque music and also involved an actor and a percussionist.
