Electroacoustic Chamber Music

Thursday, April 10, 2014

Hear music by Serbian Aleksandra Vrebalov composed for the string quartet ETHEL on this New Sounds program, devoted to electroacoustic chamber music.  Listen to a double-quartet with pre-recorded sounds, “Logbook,” which was commissioned in 2013 by Dusan Tynek Dance Theatre and is Vrebalov’s way of summing up war-time Serbia. According to ETHEL cellist Dorothy Lawson, “Logbook” contains some of the most terrifying music they play, but also has moments of innocence, such as imitating crickets chirping in a field.
