On June 11th, Turning Point Ensemble (TPE) is presenting TPE Interactive, an online concert featuring works by two innovative composers David Eagle and Mauricio Pauly.
Since founding in 2002, Turning Point Ensemble (TPE) continues to meet its mandate to increase the understanding and appreciation of music composed during the past hundred years. large chamber ensemble (16 instrumentalists and conductor) has built a strong reputation for bringing togethers music from the early 20th century and contemporary works in creative, quality programming and presentations.
Recorded on April 19th and 20th, 2021 in the Chan Shun Concert Hall at University of British Columbia, the virtual concert features both of the composers performing live interactive electronics alongside the ensemble.
This progressive online concert features two interactive compositions by David Eagle for large ensemble and live electronics. His compositions use interactive computer applications
, and sound spatialization. The two works are Two Forms of Intuitionfor chamber orchestra and computer and Unremembered Tongues/?n??memb??d t??z for soprano, ensemble, and computer, and featuring soprano Robyn Driedger-Klassen.
Also on the bill are two compositions by composer Mauricio Pauly: Clinamen clinamen clinamen for clarinet and string quartet and a new premiere commissioned by Turning Point Ensemble, We en flor de chiflón for mixed sextet (violin, cello, trumpet, harp, percussion, electronics). Mauricio Pauly’s compositions are written for hybrid instrumental/electronic and acoustic ensembles.
Artistic Director Owen Underhill says “this program was challenging and rewarding to put together due to the complexity and originality of the integration of Turning Point Ensemble with sophisticated live interactions featuring various forms of computer processing and live electronics. This has allowed for a rich collaboration with both composers in advance of the recording, during performance, and in the post-production phase. TPE Interactive is by a wide margin our most ambitious large-scale project realized during the pandemic. We have worked alongside our partners to present it in a high-quality audio and video format including additional interviews so that it can be experienced fully through online release.”
