‘Cello Populus’ CD Release Concert

Posted by admin On April - 16 - 2010

Next month, ANALOG arts will release Cello Populus, the solo recording debut by Dariusz Skoraczewski. Most people know Dariusz as the assistant principal cellist in the Baltimore Symphony, or as one-third of Monument Piano Trio, but earlier this year, Dariusz set aside some time to record a few solo works for his instrument.

 

On Sunday, May 23, Dariusz will perform the program from the CD on a solo recital at Baltimore’s An Die Musik. The repertoire includes solo cello works by Ligeti, Hindemith, Saariaho and others, and there will be a reception following the performance.

Iron Composer

Posted by admin On August - 21 - 2009

Iron Composer is an instant composition contest. Five composers are selected from around the country to compete in a daylong event. At 9 am, they are given an instrumentation and a musical ingredient. They have just five hours to finish a piece of music, which is immediately rehearsed and judged at a free public concert.

 

Now in its third year, Iron Composer was created for the <i>ARTSaha!</i> festival in a partnership between ANALOG <i>arts</i> and the University of Nebraska at Omaha. The 2009 competition will take place in suburban Cleveland with the institutional support of Baldwin-Wallace College. It will also be broadcast live by Cleveland’s classical radio station WCLV. Mark Satola of the Not the Dead White Composer’s Hour will emcee.

 

The five finalists who will compete are Andrew Jamieson (IL), Travis Jeffords (IN), Sunny Knable (NY), Wei-Chieh Lin (NY), & John Rot (OH). For more information on the finalists and the competition, visit ironcomposer.org.

Zodiac Dust

Posted by admin On August - 20 - 2009

Zodiac Dust is the sophomore album by Brooklyn-based percussion duo Loop 2.4.3. ANALOG arts released it in partnership with indie label Music Starts From Silence. The album showcases Loop 2.4.3’s original compositions in a suite of songs that take the listener on an aural journey. It also features instruments that were built for the duo.

 

Doug Simpson from Audiophile Audition writes about the custom built eLog:

 

After a short commencement prelude, “Prologue: Rebirth,” the album opens up with “Dark Matter,” a cosmic saga that mixes heavy and light percussion with open-minded effects and electronics. It is here the hand-made eLog is introduced, which Michael Wygmans custom built for Loop 2.4.3., which is essentially a log drum that offers a broader sonic canvas. To get crucial auditory agitation, the eLog is run through a Fender amp and a vocal effects unit, thus fashioning a synthesized, distorted characteristic. “Dark Matter” persuasively demonstrates that rhythm instruments can direct melodic lines, execute choruses, and engage listeners’ imagination.

 

Zodiac Dust is on sale now at all major digital retailers.
