Lea Bertucci at Silo City
Saturday, August 26th, 2017
@ Silo City (Marine A)
Free and open to the general public
Join us at Silo City (Marine A) for the premiere of a new, site-specific composition by our Silo City resident Lea Bertucci and her electroacoustic saxophone quartet! During her three-week residency at Squeaky Wheel, Bertucci will be working on the first of a two-part suite of compositions, specifically developed for the uniquely resonant space of Silo City. Join us for the unveiling of this ambitious project, featuring musicians from Buffalo, and capping the end of our Summer 2017 residency program.
Lea Bertucci is an American composer and performer whose work describes relationships between acoustic phenomena and biological resonance. In addition to her instrumental practice, (alto saxophone and bass clarinet), her work often incorporates multi-channel speaker arrays, electroacoustic feedback, extended instrumental technique and tape collage. Her discography includes a number of solo and collaborative releases on independent labels in the US and Europe, including I Dischi Del Barone, Obsolete Units, Telegraph Harp and Clandestine Compositions. In 2017, she will release All That is Solid Melts Into Air: Works for Strings, on NNA Tapes. She has performed extensively across the US and Europe at venues such as The Kitchen, PS1 MoMA, The Drawing Center, Anthology Film Archives, Abrons Arts, ISSUE Project Room, Pioneer Works, The Queens Museum, Artists’ Space, Caramoor, The High Zero Festival, and Experimental Intermedia, among many others.
