An evening featuring three solo sets by Jessica Pavone, Rob Lundberg, and Amanda Schoofs.

 

Jessica Pavone

KNUCKLE UNDER

solo viola

 

Pavone’s recent works for solo viola and voice stem from years of concentrated long tone practice and an interest in repetition, song form, and sympathetic vibration. She combines her long tone rituals with delay, understated melodies and sparse lyrical content while continuously experimenting with new forms.

 

Rob Lundberg studied with Mark Helias at New School University and has since been performing, touring and recording with a number of groups including killer BOB, In One Wind, and others. His solo project brings together backgrounds in classical music and improvisation, as well as a keen interest in minimalism and the timbral extremes possible with bowed, stringed instruments. Additionally he draws on his passion for conceptual and contemporary art in the construction of his pieces and pairings with his visual images.

 

Amanda Schoofs

STEAL INTO THE WORLD

solo voice/electronics

 

Composer/vocalist Amanda Schoofs creates visceral works that emphasize timbre and intimacy while exposing the raw and vulnerable nature of the human spirit. Her work extends from the experimental music tradition and exists in the space between diverse artistic practices. Her solo Steal Into the World is an aural response to Paul Mitchell's artist book and poetry of the same title.
