BAC Salon: Carolina Eyck + ACME
Theremin master Carolina Eyck and The American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME) perform Eyck’s minimalist Fantasias for string quartet and theremin, using electronic effects to bring an authentically fresh sonic pallet to the forefront. At times reverent to traditional melody, harmony, and tone, while at other times as defiant as the most eccentric Musique Concrete, the Fantasias bears the mark of a true virtuoso in her prime.
Listen to the opening track from Fantasias: Oakunar Lynntuja (Strange Birds).
Bryce Dessner: Little Blue Something for string quartet
