More about TRIANGLE RHYSING:MUSIC FOR MASSED GUITARS:
An original suite for multiple groups of electric guitars, TRIANGLE RHYSING was created as a way for local musicians to collaborate on a truly massive scale. First performed in 2011 with twenty-two musicians, TR's reprise performance in 2012 included an ensemble of nearly three dozen. For this third performance, TR will feature more than 50 guitarists + drums + cello and, for the first time, vocals -- nearly 60 musicians in all. TR is composed and conducted by Andras Fekete and Matthew Guess.
"...When Rhys Chatham, Glenn Branca or any other composer gathers several guitarists—from three to 1,000—in one space, the generally accepted term is "massed guitar symphony." But that phrase puts the guitarists in an unnecessary and incorrect box of polity and high society; indeed, though Chatham and Branca make precisely composed and arranged music, the same impulse that drives a teenager to buy a cheap six-string and plug into a cheap Peavey amplifier isn't so far removed from the impulse behind letting dozens of guitarists do the same. It's catharsis by volume, victory by overtone, glory by sound. To wit, the idea first occurred to Chatham after he saw The Ramones play in New York in the late '70s. Triangle Rhysing explores this idea... Get ready to feel the sound." —Grayson Currin, THE INDEPENDENT WEEKLY
More about BRYCE CLAYTON EIMAN:
"...a fugue for chainsaws, magnetic interference and electrocuted elephants, [Eiman] locates a surprising diversity of hue... Chaotic bass waves and richly textured distortion build until they scream like rending sheet metal, actual chords dropping out like sprung rivets... On the whole, it evokes one of Richard Serra's massive metal sculptures — not the calm, elegant final shapes, but the brutally physical process that creates them. —Brian Howe, THE INDEPENDENT WEEKLY
