Jason Treuting’s Amid the Noise began as a soundtrack and is now a communal music-making project that can occur with a flexible number of musicians in almost any combination. The musical ideas in Amid the Noise are abstract: drones, melodies, rhythms, textures, patterns. Sō Percussion has experimented with the instruments and discovered that accordion, organ, or tuba play a satisfying drone as well as bowed vibraphone. Don't miss the chance to see this new contemporary music from Amid the Noise.
Featuring works by Viet Cuong, John Cage, Caroline Shaw, Pauline Oliveros, Eric Cha-Beach, and Jason Treuting.
