FLOATING MESSAGES AND FADING FREQUENCIES
Athelas Sinfonietta conducted by Pierre-André Valade with: Annie Gosfield, sampler keyboard Roger Kleier, electric guitar Chris Cutler, drums/percussion
Read the article about the piece in the Telegraph. New York composer-performer Annie Gosfield creates some of the most compelling sounds in today’s new music. Finding the warmth in mechanical, musical, industrial and signal noise, her use of sampled sounds is sophisticated and captivating. This landmark show brings together her Trio with Denmark’s leading new music ensemble for the premiere of a major new work, Floating Messages and Fading Frequencies, based on the secret radio transmissions between British Intelligence and the Danish Resistance in the Second World War. The theme continues with a new suite by Karsten Fundal based on his music to the Resistance film Flame & Citron, and is rounded off with EWA7, Annie’s signature ‘industrial’ piece for factory sounds, guitar, drums and percussion. Listen to a sample of 'Combustion Chamber' Stephen Gosling plays one of Annie Gosfield's earlier works See also: http://www.karstenfundal.dk/
