Electronic pioneer Morton Subotnick has been creating innovative compositional works with electronics, computers, and alternative media for over 50 years. His large scale electronic composition “Silver Apples of the Moon” commissioned by Nonesuch Records was the first of it’s kind and inspired decades of composers & performers to utilize electronic instruments in modern chamber music. Since then it has become a landmark recording & has been entered into the National Register of Recorded Works at the Library of Congress, of which only 300 recordings throughout the entire history of recorded music have been chosen. Subotnick continues to create boundary pushing music for both electronics & classical instruments. For this rare concert Subotnick will perform “Silver Apples of the Moon Revisited”.
Laura Dickens’ (Slutcode) solo project Leucrocuta sees her venture into dark electronic territory drawing on influence from industrial, ambient and outsider synth pop. Hard drum machines rhythms skitter & flow under layers of her vocals. Swaying like the winds, they coat her sonic landscape as they cut through with sharp hums. Vocal shadows scurry like insects. Leucrocuta feels like a dream often on fast forward, the distorted world seems almost surreal as it melts & shifts. Dickens’ vocals become the only spirits that can inhabit the mutating forest she’s created.
