Jeremy Flower, Carla Kihlstedt, Matthias Bossi : The Real Me
From

For this New Sounds, multi-instrumentalist and composer Jeremy Flower offers a preview of his new song cycle for large chamber ensemble “The Real Me.” In addition to acoustic compositions, Flower has also worked with electronics and with electronic producers in experimental, ambient and minimal techno genres. Echoes of his experience in the electronic world as well as his firm roots in prog rock, peek through in “The Real Me.”

The work features violinist/vocalist/composer Carla Kihlstedt (and the rest of Rabbit Rabbit) and was written for a core group of guitar, bass, drums, and electronics, plus chamber ensemble (winds, brass, and strings), from the worlds of new music, jazz, and rock. “The Real Me,” with music and lyrics by Jeremy Flower, premieres at National Sawdust on Jan. 8, 2016, at 7PM. 

Also on the show is the conclusion from Carla Kihlstedt’s song cycle, “At Night We Walk In Circles And Are Consumed By Fire,” which got its world premiere with the International Contemporary Ensemble at the Ecstatic Music Festival in 2013, and is based on the recounting of dreams.
