No Longer Showing.

The Kitchen is pleased to present the world premiere of Mass of Dissolution, a new work composed by Lea Bertucci for percussion trio Tigue (Matt Evans, Amy Garapic, and Carson Moody) and commissioned by the American Composers Forum. The composition is conceived of as an incantation against the blind violence of military-industrial power that dominates global dynamics. Combining extended techniques for percussion with dislocated fragments of traditional American drum corps music, this work takes an intensely industrial approach to contemporary percussion music.

Opening the evening will be a short set by the newly formed duo of Amirtha Kidambi (voice) and Lea Bertucci (tape/electronics). Called "ingeniously contemporary" by the New York Times, this project features improvisations for voice processed through idiosyncratic misuse of tape machines.

Organized by Matthew Lyons.

January 24, 8pm. $15 General / $12 Members.
