Neuburg and Sideband will each bring their individual repertoires that combine elements of live electronics, acoustic performance, and innovative controllers. They will also share the stage for Dan Trueman’s “Clapping Machine Music Variations” and a new vocal ensemble & laptops
piece by Neuburg specifically created for this collaboration.
Born of the Princeton Laptop Orchestra (PLOrk), SIDEBAND first came together as an ensemble for their Carnegie Hall premiere with the American Composers Orchestra and their collaborative concert at The Kitchen with So Percussion and Matmos. Using custom made hemispherical speakers and a fleet of laptops, Sideband turns each member of its ensemble in to an island of sound, returning a sense of acoustics and space to the normally flat world of electronic music.
Sideband's parent ensemble the Princeton Laptop Orchestra (PLOrk) -- the first ensemble of its size and kind -- has inspired the formation of laptop orchestras across the world, from Oslo to Dublin, Bangkok, Hong Kong and Stanford. PLOrk has been covered by the New York Times, Wired Magazine, NPR, The Guardian (UK), and many others. In 2008, PLOrk was awarded a major grant from the MacArthur
AMY X NEUBURG (Oakland, CA) has been developing her own brand of irreverently genre-crossing works for voice, electronics and chamber ensembles for over 25 years. Best known for her innovative use of live looping technology with electronic percussion, her 4-octave vocal range and her colorful lyrics, Neuburg has performed at such diverse venues across the world as Other Minds, Bang on a Can, the Berlin Intl. Poetry Festival, the Wellington and Christchurch Jazz Festivals (NZ), and the Warsaw Philharmonic. Blah blah blah you know the rest commissions ensembles Europe Japan Robert Ashley grants prizes degrees.
Hope to see you! Love and xx -- a
