Jim Ivy’s Tangled Bell Ensemble
November 1, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
The New Music Conflagration, Inc. presents Florida experimental composer Jim Ivy’s Tangled Bell Ensemble performing “Midaregami”.
The main goal of this exploration is to juxtapose seemingly conflicting concepts and approaches, and display them in an aligning way; to show how antagonistic forces and unfamiliarity can create a cooperative friction and become formidable allies. The intent being that all portions of the whole (notated music, text, improvisation) were at once independent of and mutually dependent upon each other; symbiotic. Each being a part and apart simultaneously.
This piece is based upon the 400 tanka poems collectively known as Midaregami (Tangled Hair) written by the Japanese author, Akiko Yosano, and is presented as more of an experimental exercise than a completed work.
