Wet Ink Ensemble is proud to present Peter Ablinger + Sam Pluta at Constellation as part of the Goethe Institute’s weeklong celebration of Austrian composer Peter Ablinger’s music, Listening With Peter Ablinger. The concert features two works by Ablinger – IEAOV “8 Vitrines, Pigment Dust" for percussion and 4-channel electronics, featuring percussionist Ian Antonio, and Black Series, a collection of rigorously organized open-instrumentation works scored “for Rock Band” which must be performed from memory – alongside a world premiere by Sam Pluta written for a sextet of Wet Ink. Of his new work, Sam Pluta says, “My piece is a 20 minute soundscape exploring expanded microtonal harmonies combining instrumental and synthesized tones. It places the ensemble at the center of the hall, with quadraphonic sound encircling the audience and ensemble.” Wet Ink has frequently collaborated with Peter Ablinger, including the ensemble's 2009 portrait concert of Ablinger's work at St. Peter's Chelsea in NYC, the first ever event in NYC celebrating his music.
