The University of Washington School of Music presents an evening of new works performed by internationally renowned visiting artists Garth Knox (France), Stefan Östersjö (Sweden), Nguyen Thanh Thuy, and Ho Hoai Anh (Vietnam). Works on the program include the premiere of a music-only version of Idioms, a piece of experimental musical theater combining experimental Western music and traditional Vietnamese music, created by School of Music composer Richard Karpen in dialogue with the musicians of the Six Tones (Swedish guitarist Stefan Östersjö and Vietnamese musicians Nguyen Thanh Thuy and Ho Hoai Anh) and programmer Josh Parmenter from the Center for Digital Arts and Experimental Media. For the second half of the concert, Garth Knox joins the Six Tones, Karpen and Parmenter to perform collaboratively composed and improvised music for viola d’amore, dan trahn, dan bau, guitars, and live electronics.
$10 all tickets.
