New York City-based new music chamber group loadbang will be featuring Martin Iddon’s piece pneuma.kharis in a livestreamed concert from the Norwegian Seamen’s Church in New York on Saturday 24 October.
pneuma.kharis has no score, only parts for each instrument. Each part is entirely independent, and each player may begin to perform at any point.
Though no particular coordination between the parts is intended, the performers should not necessarily feel that the particular lengths of their pauses and the order in which performers enter must be different on each occasion; it would be wholly licit to decide in advance upon a wholly fixed ordering, just as it would be licit not to, or to change such a fixed version at a later date. In any case, some moments of silence are almost certainly desirable.
This concert is of free access to livestream, no in person attendance available.
