Live Stage: plAy Ensemble + [Los Angeles]

playensemble.jpegDangerous Curve’s “Is It Music?” Series May 27, 2007; 4:00 p.m. :: Chinatown adjacent at: 1020 East Fourth Place, (500 Molino Street #102), Los Angeles, CA, U.S.A. :: $10, $9, $8, or $7 sliding scale ::

plAy Ensemble (Kimberly Fitch, Danny Holt, Shirley Hunt, Andrew Leonard, Alison Lowell, Laura Patterson) Celer, Bettina Wenzel and Hans W. Koch. (Programs subject to change.) As always, beverages will be served, and most of the times, a great art show will be up (we are an art gallery, after all.)

Kimberly Fitch (viola) has performed music by composers such as Beat Furrer, Matthias Pintscher, Steve Reich and Wolfgang Rihm, as well as works by faculty members and students of Eastman as a member of Musica Nova, OSSIA, and The Cape Cod Experiment. Kimberly’s most memorable performances were in concert with pop music diva, Donna Summer, and the excellent Chris Botti Band. Kimberly has worked with new music expert Brad Lubman as well as period music experts Christel Thielmann and Kristian Bezeidenhout.

Danny Holt (piano and percussion) is equally at home in classical venues (Carnegie Hall, Walt Disney Concert Hall), clubs (Tonic, Il Corral), art galleries (MASS MoCA, L.A. Design Center, Dangerous Curve), churches, living rooms, and wherever else he can find a piano and someone to listen. Whether presenting a straight-forward recital or one of his multimedia extravaganzas. Danny has held fellowships at the Bang On a Can Summer Music Institute, The Weill Music Institute at Carnegie Hall, and New England Conservatory’s Summer Institute for Contemporary Performance Practice, and he has worked with such composers as Steve Reich, Louis Andriessen, Christian Wolff, James Tenney, Graham Fitkin, David Lang, Michael Gordon, Augusta Read Thomas, and Michael Finnissy.

Shirley Hunt (cello, viola) frequently performs on both modern and baroque cello as well as viola da gamba, and has studied period performance practice with some of the leading continuo players in her field. An avid rock-cellist, Shirley performs and records with a variety of bands, singer-songwriters, and experimental music collectives in Portland, Chicago, and Los Angeles, and has appeared in clubs and alternative concert venues across the United States. She recently performed with the Australian ambient-rock ensemble Function at the 2006 SXSW festival, under the leadership of visionary musician and composer Matt Nicholson. Shirley has worked with composers Steve Reich and John Adams, and has performed in chamber music master classes with the Emerson, Borromeo, and Vermeer Quartets.

Andrew Leonard (clarinet) has won the Torrance, Redlands, and Peninsula Music Festival concerto competitions, was a semi-finalist in the Midland-Odessa competition last year and he has received a grant from the Santa Barbara Foundation. Andrew has performed with the International Bachakademie Orchestra, and the New York String Seminar, among others.

Alison Lowell (oboe) has premiered works at the Rose Hall of Lincoln Center, the Henry Mancini Institute, Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition and the Women in New Music Festival in Rochester, NY. Lowell performed “City Life” as part of the Weill Music Institute’s Young Professionals Training Workshop at Carnegie Hall with Steve Reich in 2006 and has been invited to perform Reich’s “Tehillim” as part of the June in Buffalo Contemporary Music Festival. She currently is engaged in a five-city recital tour with pianist/composer David Plylar as joint recipients of a 2006 Howard Hanson commission.

Laura Patterson (flute) has performed in venues such as Carnegie Halls Weill Recital Hall, Cami Hall, and Disney Hall with Yo-Yo Ma and Pepe Romero.

Celer does beautiful ambient sound.

Bettina Wenzel has collaborated with many artists, among them Hans W. Koch, Thomas Lehn, Michael Vorfeld, Manual Mota, Simon Nabatov, Josef Novotny, Achim Tang, Joker Nies, Andreas Wagner, Ernst Reijsiger, Jonas Quale, Lasse Marhaug, Michael Francis Duch, Dan Warburton, Pascal Battus, Fredric Blondy, Bertrand Gauguet, David Subik, Peter Worringer, Hans Schneider, Joachim Zoepf, Wolfgang Schliemann, Ernesto Rodriguez, Marcelo Aguirre, and others. She has presented her work in Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, England, France, Germany, Norway, Portugal, Serbia, Slowakia, India, and the United States.

Hans W. Koch works with electronic sound produced by, or taken from, everyday tools, such as household electronics, hair dryers, steel wool, or old computers. He has collaborated with artists such as Tomomi Adachi, Sam Ashley, Peter Behrendsen, Jens Brand, Michael Duch, Annegret Heinl, Lasse Morhaug, Ortrud Kegel, Thomas Lehn, Manuel Mota, Harald Muenz, Tisha Mukarji, Joker Nies, Josef Novotny, Joscha Oetz, Marian Palla, Ben Patterson, Zdenek Plachy, Allan Purvess, Ernesto Rodriguez, Jan Steklk, David Subik, Chao-Ming Tung, Michael Vorfeld, Andreas Wagner, Bettina Wenzel, Joachim Zoepf.

Dangerous Curve is a leading contemporary art space in the Arts District of Los Angeles. It is a privately run venue for live art/visual art performance, experimental art and music, and installations. The gallery supports visionary established and emerging artists of all ages, with live art residencies and one-person shows of high-quality, risky and intelligent work that’s ahead of the curve. We are always looking for submissions of live art and experimental music.
