Keeril Makan: Washed By Fire
EITHER/OR PERFORMS THE MUSIC OF KEERIL MAKAN
For more than a decade, Keeril Makan has been creating hard-driving, visceral music that is blended with a quiet beauty, offering listeners around the world "a fascinating wedding of intellect and expressivity" (Newsday). This concert presents the U.S. premiere of two of his works for string quartet, The Noise Between Thoughts and Washed By Fire, performed by Either/Or. Declared a "first-rate new music ensemble" by The New York Times, the group was founded in 2004 by pianist/composer Richard Carrick and percussionist David Shively. Either/Or focuses on new works for unconventional chamber ensembles and soloists rarely heard elsewhere. A third work for percussion, Resonance Alloy, will be performed by Shively.
