Musik in Nebel (Fog Music
) explores music that is largely improvised, ambiguous, and inspired by stream-of-consciousness composition. We present two brand-new commissions by local composers, Alan Retamozo and Ingebrigt Håker Flaten, as well as a commissioned arrangement of a concerto for pedal steel guitar by Jeff Snyder featuring Bob Hoffnar, Director of the Liminal Sound Series.

The music that Density512 plays is generally notated with great complexity. Musicians struggle to try and replicate the sounds that are exactly what the composer intended. But some composers take a different approach, by giving the performers more control. Camila Agosto's Chain Reaction is a series of musical images that the players interpret simultaneously. In Christine Burke's half murmur, the composer supplies a page with specific directions for all the instruments and gives them seconds of time to elaborate on what she's written. We end the show with Vinko Globokar, a trombonist, composer, and wild improviser. His work, Kaleidoskop im Nebel (Kaleidoscope in fog) fits with the other works as it is a stream-of-consciousness collage of sounds. The music is comprised of intricate instrumental techniques, peculiar percussion resonances, and even coughing and laughing from orchestra members as if we have stumbled into the middle of Globokar's improvisatory creative space.

Hosted by Silent Films Out Loud
Jacob Schnitzer, conductor

Taking on this season of summer blockbusters with a “Buster” of their own, Silent Films Out Loud returns for a third time to pair the original scores of Austin composers Jackie MyersDavid Biller and Dave Madden with the short films of Buster Keaton. The pioneering pictures include 1920’s Neighbors and two releases from 1921 - The Goat and The High Sign - enhanced by a live orchestra to accentuate each action, sync with every stunt, and get in on each gag.

Local orchestra Density512 is on board once again to complement the cinematic spectacle and give star billing alongside Keaton to the varied styles and sounds of each composer. Myers is a pianist, organist, composer, and singer known for her bluesy vocals and innovative and fluid keyboard work as well as serving as musical director on Kansas City NPR affiliate KCUR’s syndicated program 12th Street Jump, five albums and work with Austin musicians such as The Lonesome Heroes and Doug Strahan & the Good Neighbors. She returns to Silent Films Out Loud this summer with her score for The Goat. Having shared the stage with artists as diverse as country legend Ray Price to Jimmie Vaughan to Billy Gibbons and joining Eric Clapton's Crossroads Festival in 2013, Biller is a guitarist, steel guitarist, bassist and composer highly sought after for all kinds of recording sessions and live gigs. He has prepared the score for Neighbors this year. An award winning arranger and keyboardist, Madden is also a member of the Recording Academy and has collaborated with legendary rock icon Steve Miller, platinum-selling band Fastball and Devo co-founder Mark Mothersbaugh in addition to hosting his very own TED Talk. His score for The High Sign will be his first for Silent Films Out Loud

Silent Films Out Loud is presented in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department and One World Theatre.

Evan Lawson, conductor
EURUDICE Jill Suzanne Morgan, mezzo-soprano
ORPHEUS Michael Dixon, tenor
CALAÏS Mikhail Smigelski, bass-baritone

Monteverdi. Lully. Telemann. Rameau. Gluck. Haydn. Offenbach. Stravinsky. Glass. The tragic love story of Orpheus and Eurydice has been celebrated by musicians for as long as we have had means to do so. But what about Orpheus's affair with fellow argonaut, Caläis? In a preview of our upcoming prismatx series (creating music inspired by art), we present Evan Lawson’s Orpheus, a new opera inspired by this little-known love triangle and a reaction to the censorship of queer elements in Greek mythology.

"Since the Victorian era, many Ancient Greek myths have been hijacked and altered to have any references to same-sex relationships or gender fluidity removed. Many people aren’t aware of the diversity in ancient myths that explore varying types of human sexuality and gender. In my exploration of the lesser known parts to the Orpheus myth, I was fascinated to find out about his relationship with fellow argonaut Caläis. In some sources, his love for the young man was deeper than his love for Eurydice. It provided me with a fascinating viewpoint on the love triangle at the core of the myth, and a fascinating love triangle to explore onstage.” -- Evan Lawson, Orpheus composer.

Thursday, February 21st @6:30pm
Sunday, February 24th @4:00pm

The Blanton Museum of Art Auditorium

Inspired by Ellsworth Kelly’s Austin, we present a concert on the boundaries of religion centered around music by Igor Stravinsky. This concert will juxtapose some of Stravinsky’s earlier work with his Catholic mass and four brand new Density512 commissions including a new oratorio by Ben Stevenson.

Local composers make an appearance in a new commissioning project, Symphony of Proverbs, from the mind of Executive Director, Nicholas Perry Clark. Over the course of four different commissioning projects, the goal of Symphony of Proverbs is to create a new large scale work through multiple composers highlighting our different ways of thinking. Three recent Butler School of Music graduates, Adeliia Faizullina, Akshaya Avril Tucker, and Ben Stonaker, will write short movements as the first installment.

Among other guests at the concert will be Ben Stevenson, another recent Butler School of Music graduate who will be writing a brand new oratorio for winds and choir discussing the impact his religious beliefs have had on him. Martin Kesuma, local pianist, also makes his soloist debut with Density512 playing Stravinsky’s Concerto for Piano and Winds.

Silent Films Out Loud - Halloween Edition

Hosted by Silent Films Out Loud
Orchestra provided by Density512
Thursday, November 1st @7pm
The Blanton Museum of Art

Be prepared to scream as Silent Films Out Loud makes its grand return for a triple feature of terror. Two horror classics of the silver screen - 1910’s Frankenstein and 1928’s The Fall of the House of Usher - along with the lightly frightful Buster Keaton short Haunted House will come alive thanks to new scores from Austin based composers Jackie Myers, Bob Hoffnar, Dave Biller and Jean Hasse.

The Haunted House (1921)
directed by Buster Keaton and Edward Cline
Scored by Jackie Myers and Dave Biller

Buster the bank teller gets out of a sticky situation only to find himself in a house of horrors, chased by both police and counterfeiters, not to mention ghosts, headless ghouls, and the devil himself. 

Frankenstein (1910)
directed and written by J. Searle Dawley
Scored by Bob Hoffnar

Frankenstein, a young medical student, trying to create the perfect human being, instead creates a misshapen monster. Made ill by what he has done, Frankenstein is comforted by his fiancée but on his wedding night he is visited by the monster. A fight ensues but the monster, seeing himself in a mirror, is horrified and runs away. He later returns, entering the new bride's room, and finds her alone.

The Fall of the House of Usher (1928)
directed by James Sibley Watson, Jr.
Scored by Jean Hasse

American avant-garde cinema arose in the 1920s when inspired amateurs schooled in other arts turned to film. The Fall of the House of Usher is the most renowned and technically accomplished work of these pioneers.

Local Composer Presentation: David Adams

 The horn is done. It’s had enough. It’s tired of bending to the will of the orchestra, always playing by their rules. And in David Adams’s new Concerto for Horn & Chamber Orchestra, it won’t have to. Here, the horn creates the universe - a big bang born of horn physics, and the orchestra had better hold on for dear life, because for this piece, untamed sounds are woven into the fabric of their world.  With elements of blues and funk, a 142-bar fugue, and over a half hour of music, you won’t want to miss this one-of a kind premier.

FREE Admission

At Fast Forward Austin 2018, Density512 will team up with Graham Reynolds, HUB New Music, and One Ounce Opera to tell the story of Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage whose mathematical work gave rise to mid-19th Century mechanical computing and provided the foundation for the inventions we rely on today.

Version for soprano and string orchestra commissioned by Density512

Presented in collaboration with Graham Reynolds and HUB New Music.

Ada_Lovelace_portrait-1.jpg

Finite Differences by Kenneth Froehlich, tells the story of Ada Lovelace, a woman born to a noble English family in 1815 who is recognized by some as the first computer programmer. Librettist John Grimmett writes that ("he" removed) "Kenneth saw a story in Ada that needed to be told, and soon, I began to see it for myself: a constant struggle for a young woman who could understand numbers beyond most of our abilities yet had so many words and feelings inside of her. 

Difference-Engine-cover-1024x1024.jpg

Called "the quintessential modern composer" by the London Independent, Austin-based composer-bandleader-improviser Graham Reynolds creates, performs, and records music for film, theater, dance, rock clubs and concert halls, with collaborators ranging from Richard Linklater and Jack Black to DJ Spooky and Ballet Austin. His triple-concerto for piano, violin, and cello The Difference Engine is "inspired by the ferocious pace of both Babbage’s thinking and the calculating speed of his invention." Graham will join HUB New Music and Density512 to bring down the house with this dynamic work. The performance will also serve as the celebration for the updated release of The Difference Engine on vinyl, via Sonic Surgery Records and pressed with brand new re-mixes from Orión Garcia (Peligrosa) and Demián Gálvez (Centavrvs).

Nevertheless Persist, Volume 1

Friday, June 22nd @8pm
Big Medium

Claude Vivier, a homosexual Canadian composer, was murdered at a young age by a prostitute. His work Zipangu addresses the human need for companionship, a value that forges a strong tie with Anna Clyne's "rest these hands" which deals with Clyne's relationship with her mother.

Reena Esmail is composer-in-residence with Street Symphony in Los Angeles, a non-profit organization that creates live, free, on-site musical experiences of the highest artistic quality for people experiencing homelessness. She has dedicated her career to taking care of those who have nothing and so we dedicate a portion of our program on human needs to her.

The program will close with Julia Wolfe’s thrilling work for string orchestra, Fuel. Fuel will be accompanied by the Bill Morrison film that she wrote the work for highlighting the economy and human needs for industry in the fast-paced modern world.

S.S. Hangover with The Contemporary Austin

S.S. Hangover with The Contemporary Austin

Collaboration with The Contemporary Austin

Ragnar Kjartansson, S.S. Hangover, 2013
Boat, captain, brass instruments, and musicians
Music by Kjartan Sveinsson
Performance: 4 hours
Courtesy the artist; Luhring Augustine, New York; and i8 Gallery, Reykjavik


Performances on select weekend dates: April 7, 8, 14, 15, and 28, and May 5 and 6, from 11A–3P. A sunset performance on Sunday, April 22, from 4–8P, is presented in partnership with the Fusebox Festival.

The S.S. Hangover sculpture will be docked and visible from the shores of Laguna Gloria from May 7 through June 3.

Artist Ragnar Kjartansson’s kinetic sound sculpture S.S. Hangover, 2013, consists of a hand-painted boat sailing on the lagoon, occupied by a formal party of six brass musicians performing ethereal music by Kjartan Sveinsson. As if caught in a daydream, the S.S. Hangover sails in circles, transporting its occupants to nowhere. The black-tie-clad performers repeatedly play a lyrical score for hours that challenges their endurance while flirting with the potential for failure as time passes. Inspired by a set prop from the 1935 American film Remember Last Night?, a drunken comedy murder-mystery, Kjartansson (Icelandic, born 1976 in Reykjavik) restored a vintage Icelandic wooden fishing boat to its likeness. The artist previously enacted a version of this playfully romantic performance at the 55th Venice Biennale, where musicians seemed to have left a party in a beautiful hybrid Scandinavian-Venetian-Grecian boat, replete with a sail featuring a mythical and overly plump Pegasus.

 We challenged some of Austin's finest emerging composers to "re-compose" and re-imagine songs for voice and piano by  Alma Mahler to become new works for chamber orchestra. Featuring composers Akshaya Avril Tucker, Adeliia Faizullina, and Seo Yoon Kim, the "re-composed" lieder are paired with Songs of a Wayfarer by Alma's first husband, Gustav Mahler, and orchestrated by Arnold Schoenberg. Concert open with Ben Stevenson's version of Bach's "Contrapuntus VII" and closes with Schoenberg's Kammersymphonie No. 1, once described by a famous guy  "hyperactive, acrobatic and not a little aggressive".

Michael Torke's Ash is a sharp, rhythmic work that answers the question "What would Beethoven sound like if he was alive today?" Following the Torke is the rarely heard Piano Concerto by masterful modernist, Joan Tower. "Homage to Beethoven" is inspired by several themes from his sonatas including the Tempest and Waldstein sonatas. Robert McDonald joins the orchestra to perform this work rarely heard work in the Austin area! The concert will conclude Beethoven's third symphony, Eroica, a revolutionary work with ideas that proved to be the impetus for the romantic era of music. One of Austin's favorite bands/quartets, invoke, will open up 30 minutes before showtime! Come early, grab a brat and a beer, and enjoy this exciting new initiative with us!
