May 16A performance of Christopher Otto’s 3x4x5x7 for 4 string instruments and sine waves, followed by talk-opera, The Power of Emotion, featuring music by Taylor Brook and text by Shonni Enelow.

Erik Carlson- Mezzo Violin
Emily DuFour- Alto Violin
Mariel Roberts- Tenor Violin
Jay Campbell- Baritione Violin
Christopher Botta- Live Mixing/Sound Design

This work presents just intonation scales that collide to create polyrhythmic beating. The instruments of the New Violin Family made by Carleen Hutchins have a unique clarity of tone and pitch, and the performers will be placed in the four corners of the room. The just intervals will interact with four channels of sine tones to create a slowly changing immersive harmonic field.
