This week: concerts in New York (February 10 – February 16, 2014)

Pop-Up Concerts | Ensemble Signal

Ensemble Signal and Brad Lubman

Ensemble Signal and Brad Lubman

Continuing the theme from their September Pop-Up appearance, Ensemble Signal returns with another program of solo works. This concert features two pieces by one of the Ensemble’s favorite composers, Hilda Paredes, including the U.S. premiere of her Intermezzo malinconico for bass clarinet, alongside two works by David Lang for solo percussion, both of which were originally commissioned by another Miller Theatre featured artist, Steven Schick. This unique pairing gives audiences a chance to experience a range of experiments in the solo form, and compare how these master composers and musicians have navigated the idiosyncrasies of their chosen instruments.

Delia Derbyshire: Sculptress of Sound

If you’ve ever heard the sound of Doctor Who’s space-traveling Police Box, the TARDIS, coming in for a landing, or the original Doctor Who theme, you’ve heard the work of Delia Derbyshire. Derbyshire attended Girton College, Cambridge, where she studied music and mathematics, receiving MA degrees in both. Following graduation, she hoped to work in recording, but was told by Decca, among others, that they did not hire women. After a brief stint working for the UN and then music publishers Boosey and Hawkes, Derbyshire found a position at the BBC’s new Radiophonic Workshop. Founded in order to produce music and sounds for radio dramas, the Radiophonic Workshop provided Derbyshire with the materials and equipment she needed to experiment with sound and math, electronic-only music, and music created with tape loops, repeated patterns, newly created sounds, and complex layering and texture. In her eleven years at the BBC, she produced music and sound for more than 200 programs, and her archives at the BBC contain nearly 300 tapes of music and sound ideas.
