SLM Ensemble: TransForm
An Evening of Experimental Music Works

"Multidimensional Tunings" by Sarah Weaver
"Universal Synchrony Music" by Sarah Weaver

The SLM Ensemble will perform TransForm, an evening of experimental music works integrating influences of jazz, contemporary music, improvisation, computer music, and the innovative individual languages of the performers. "Multidimensional Tunings" (2015) is a piece on tunings of musical elements and intuition, utilizing microtonality and spectral components. The music is structured towards nodes within multiplicities of individualized and international music tuning systems present in contemporary music. “Universal Synchrony Music” (2013-2016) is a multi-year electroacoustic project in collaboration with the NASA Kepler Mission and NASA ArtSpace exploring musical, technological, and metaphorical realizations of synchrony. Sonification of data on stars and planets in the Kepler field 1000-3000 light years away is utilized for presence across distance, inherent expressions of multiplanetary habitable systems, and interactions for synchrony. TransForm expresses new synthesis and creation through this music into the future.

Musicians: Jane Ira Bloom, soprano saxophone, David Morales Boroff, violin, Min Xiao-Fen, pipa, Ned Rothenberg, alto saxophone, bass clarinet, David Taylor, bass trombone, Denman Maroney, piano, Mark Helias, bass, Gerry Hemingway, drumset, Sam Pluta, computer, sonification, Doug Van Nort, computer, sonification, Sarah Weaver, conductor, composer

The “SLM Ensemble: TransForm” concert is part of The Composers Now Festival: The Composers Now Festival celebrates living composers, the diversity of their voices and the significance of their musical contributions to our society. During the month of February, the Festival brings together dozens of performances presented by venues, ensembles, orchestras, opera companies, dance companies and many other innovative events throughout New York City. Experience the sounds and get to know the creators behind the music. From jazz to indie, from classical to electronic and beyond, join us on a sonic journey through the landscape of the arts of our time. Composers will be in attendance, interacting with audiences. Composers Now is a project partner of The Fund for the City of New York. We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, the Cheswatyr Foundation, the Ann and Gordon Getty Foundation, ASCAP, BMI, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts.
