Description

METROPOLIS ENSEMBLE PRESENTS

LEGION




RighteousGIRLS
, a piano and flute duo who explore beyond the acoustic medium, expand their sonic world with a program that highlights immersive multi-track layering, field recordings, improvisation, and electronica, culminating in the world premiere of Legion (for 8 flutes and 8 pianos) by Alex Burtzos.

Other composers on the program include Andy Akiho, Ambrose Akinmusire, Paula Matthusen and Mike Perdue.



BLUEPRINTS
unites pianists from different musical genres for eclectic concerts that present traditional classical music alongside contemporary works (including premieres), jazz and free improvisation. Co-founded by Daniel Anastasio and Erika Dohi, these unusually varied programs are each inspired by an aesthetic theme or blueprint. In Visible Roads, co-created with Metropolis Ensemble, represents its first major artistic collaboration with another performing organization, with the goal of enriching the community of pianists, composers, and instrumentalists alike through creating and fostering new collaborative relationships.
