Tomorrow (April 14), composer Ulrich Krieger and percussionist Amy Knoles, both faculty members of The Herb Alpert School of Music at CalArts, join German computer music composer Robert Henke, aka Monolake, on stage at Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater (REDCAT) for in limbo.
From the REDCAT program notes:
Beyond the outer fringes of club culture and experimental music, in a limbo where ambient turns over to beats, grooves to soundscape, noise to silence, Berlin EDM maven and inventor Henke brings laptop and electronics to play with a pair of fiercely eclectic LA musicmakers: rock experimenter Ulrich Krieger and avant-gardist Amy Knoles.
Henke, co-developer of the popular music sequencer software Ableton Live, blends elements of techno, dubstep and ambient music, presenting "programmed electronic music at its most sensually expressive," according to Pitchfork. Krieger, former member of the Lou Reed-helmed band Metal Machine Trio, plays the electric sax and electronics during the performance; while Knoles, executive director of contemporary classical music ensemble California E.A.R. Unit, plays electronic percussion.
