CONTEMPORANEOUS // BETH MORRISON PROJECTS: NEXT GENERATION

Wednesday, February 20, 2019 | 7:00 pm
Thursday, February 21, 2019 | 7:00 pm

National Sawdust | 80 North 6th Street | Brooklyn, NY
Presented by Beth Morrison Projects
General Admission $25 | Feb 20 Tickets | Feb 21 Tickets | More information

BMP: Next Generation is a new initiative to discover the next generation of music-theatre and opera-theatre compositional voices. The two finalists chosen in the 2018 cycle, Michael Lanci and Emma O’Halloran, return to National Sawdust in February to showcase new and original 30-minute works. Lanci’s satirical operetta will tackle a congresswoman’s revelation about climate change and the effects of money in politics. O’Halloran’s monodrama about the inner life of a murderess explores how our secret personal history gets misrepresented in the public eye. Following the performance, one of these two finalists will receive a commission for a full evening-length operatic work to be developed, premiered, and toured by BMP.

Aish with Varros (Single Release Show)

San Francisco based singer, writer and composer, Aish, transforms his tumultuous childhood, estrangement from family, his struggles with sexuality and his migration across continents into grand landscapes of cinematic pop music constructed with layered vocals, strings, harp, metallophones and electronics. 

With the release of Promise Me and Migrant in 2017, Aish emerged with a distinctive art pop aesthetic, deftly combining intricate vocal arrangements, classical chamber and contemporary electronic music. 

Aish's debut full length album, Mother, came out on March 30, 2018.

eco ensemble: Foxtrot Delirium

UC Berkeley's adventurous eco ensemble brings the cinematic vision of Ernst Lubitsch to life with the US premiere of Argentine composer Martin Matalon's film score for the director's The Oyster Princess. Lubitsch's 1919 silent comedy of mistaken identities is a saucy satire aimed at the desires and transgressions of the bourgeoisie. Matalon has previously scored silent films by Fritz Lang and Luis Buñuel, and here highlights Lubitsch's fleet dramatic sense and masterful comedic timing, in a score that combines acoustic and electronic sounds. Cal Performances executive and artistic director Matías Tarnopolsky begins the program with an onstage interview of Matalon; following an intermission, the film will be screened to a live performance of the score.
