Experimental violin and piano duo entr’acte presents Zombies. Formed by violinist Luke Fitzpatrick and pianist Laure Struber, entr’acte was created with the goal of expanding the sonic possibilities of the violin and piano duo. Zombies was written to recontextualize older melodies into a meditative exploration of sound colors. The piece uses an extensive amount of inside the piano techniques and emphasizes the resonance of the instrument.
Opening the concert will be The Tomb: the complete works for adapted viola and intoning voice by Luke Fitzpatrick. As a long-time member of the Harry Partch ensemble, Luke has written and performed an extensive amount of music for the combination of adapted viola and intoning voice. His complete works are presented here for the first time.
