Description

Inwood Art Works presents

BENT DUO

Friday, December 14, 2018, 8:00pm

Inwood Art Works Gallery - 4857 Broadway

FREE

Bent Duo is an Upper Manhattan-based experimental music duo that explores innovative ideas in music, sound, and performance. This performance in the Inwood Art Works pop-up gallery space will showcase works that reevaluate our experience of sound in public space and of music in our social imagination. It will also feature a sneak-peek of a new work-in-progress created especially for Bent Duo by sound artist Jace Clayton.

ABOUT BENT DUO:

Bent Duo is an emerging NYC-based duo project investigating the limits of chamber music for piano and percussion and the exciting innovations that happen at the outer fringes of this repertoire. Founded in 2015, the duo has performed at a wide variety of venues and is equally committed to works that exploit the performers' virtuosic instrumental technique as to those that are developing new performance techniques entirely. This broad terrain includes notated works for piano and percussion, instruction-based works for non-traditional instruments, and non-disciplinary performance works, as well as collaborative projects with other artists working in sound, technology, and other areas.

Bent Duo members Bill Solomon and David Friend are respected members of the NYC classical and new music scenes and frequently perform in NYC, across the country, and abroad with groups including Ensemble Signal, Grand Band, Talujon Percussion, Bang on a Can All-Stars, and the American Composers Orchestra. Bent Duo allows them an outlet to collaborate with creative artists who are working on the cutting edge of new compositional and performance techniques, to bring to attention existing repertoire for this underserved instrumentation, and to undertake the radical experiments in chamber music and performance that more conventional ensembles are unlikely to tackle.

Most recently, Bent Duo has performed at mainstream and underground venues including the Dimenna Center for Classical Music (NYC), the Center for New Music (San Francisco), and Betalevel (LA); commissioned and premiered major new works from artists including Sarah Hennies, Casey Anderson, and Jace Clayton; been invited to give residencies at the Hartford School of Art/Hartt School of Music and Tulane University; and been a featured performer at 'Performing Indeterminacy,' an international conference at the University of Leeds (UK).
