Ohio-born Brooklyn-based percussion trio Tigue returns to Columbus with two world premieres and a new batch of original music. Admission is free.
Tigue makes its own blend of instrumental minimalism while collaborating with and commissioning experimental work by contemporary composers.
Commissioned works by Paula Matthusen and Elori Kramer will explore the sculptural and mechanical nature of percussive objects, as well as the effects of emerging technology on our understanding of the natural world, the individual and perception. Original music entitled “This New Forest” (2018) is inspired by ecological speculations fusing nature and machine—translating authentic and imagined biological systems into a musical world that is rhythmic, beautiful, immediate and physical.
This performance is part of the free “New Music at Short North Stage” concert series.
