Patchwork @ Kenyon - World Premiere of Axamer Folio

  • Kenyon College 105 College Drive Gambier, OH, 43022 United States (map)

This is our first show in 2016 and we're thrilled to be premiering a new piece by Eric Wubbels! 

Eric describes Axamer Folio as a modular network of 25 pieces for saxophone and drumset, with no pre-set order, form, or duration. The individual pieces (which include duos, solos, and duos that can be separated and combined with other pieces) project a small number of musical objects in an extremely diverse range of performative and notational contexts, from rigorously specified to indeterminate, graphic, and text scores; from tightly synchronized duo music to phasing loops, list structures, and free improvisation. The result is a kind of self-similar labyrinth of possibilities, within which the performers trace a path. Axamer Folio is dedicated to Anthony Braxton and Mathias Spahlinger.
