Bent Frequency  will present the US premiere of a A Wave and Waves for an 100 percussionist performance by California-based composer Michael Pisaro. The work is loosely based on John Ashbery’s poem “A Wave.” Pisaro describes the work as “an idea about confounding the small and the large: small sounds, many different kinds of them, very soft, on a large time scale.” It’s a unique piece of sonic art that examines the idea of individual soft sonic events overlapping and combining to make large-scale sonic structures in a manner that’s akin to individual water molecules in the ocean combining to create wave patterns–“the collective action of granular sounds making shapes of great mathematical complexity.”
