August Labs at National Sawdust

Vendil will show a portion of her work-in-progress, "Islander" (working title). “Islander,” is a music and movement suite scored for various keyboard instruments, kulintang (Philippine gamelan), and electronics, and incorporate Filipino folk song and dance, appropriated Spanish dances, and fashion. The work will closely examine the residue colonialism has left behind, the permanent and alterable state of identity, and lost and found culture. Vendil’s longtime collaborator, composer Trevor Gureckis, will score electronic elements. Along with Vendil, pianists Melinda Faylor and Mary Prescott will perform.

Potential Energies by Trevor Gureckis Album Release Concert at National Sawdust

Potential Energies by Trevor Gureckis Album Release Concert at National Sawdust

The Nouveau Classical Project will perform the music from their debut album, Potential Energies, composed by Trevor Gureckis and released later this summer by Philip Glass’s label, Orange Mountain Music. 

This colorful and hypnotic work was commissioned in 2014 and premiered by NCP and TrioDance Collective at BAM Fischer. Originally conceived as a ballet for both musicians and dancers, Potential Energies breaks barriers between music and movement. Acting as two sides of a single identity, individual musician and dancer pairs explore the struggle to reconcile bright-eyed ambitions with reality through physical interaction and interference.

This concert staging will include the original collaborators of PE: dancers will choreographed by Barbie Diewald and all performers will wear costumes designed by Atelier de Geste. Special pre-release copies will be available for sale.

Mysterium Novum with The Nouveau Classical Project

Mysterium Novum is an immersive installation that melds ribbons, light, music, and interactive technology inspired by synesthesia, a neurological phenomenon in which stimulation of one sense immediately triggers another. Lush ribbons by synesthetic artist Anne Patterson provides an environment embedded with music by Paul Haas performed by The Nouveau Classical Project, reactive flowers by Joel Mellin, scents by Atelier de Geste, and lighting by Jeanette Oi-Suk Yew. Audience members are free to roam around this synesthetic forest and experience a synthesis of art and the senses.
