Mivos Quartet

Eric Wubbels — being time
Friday, November 14, 2014 at 8PM
Studio 2

The Mivos Quartet, one of the most sought-after string quartets in the international new music scene, will be in residence at EMPAC to develop and perform a new work by American composer Eric Wubbels. Titled being time, the piece is an audio variation on the psychological experience of time. Extending nearly an hour, it moves from sections of extreme slowness and static sustains to high-energy plateaus of dense, saturated sound textures. In the final sequence, quadraphonic electronic sound pushes the performance into an altogether new dimension, creating vivid psychoacoustic illusions by using extremely high sine waves. Mivos Quartet: Olivia De Prato, violin Joshua Modney, violin Victor Lowrie, viola Mariel Roberts, cello
