a.pe.ri.od.ic (17): Four (x4) Systems: Feldman within Brown
a.pe.ri.od.ic presents a program investigating a unique relationship between works by Morton Feldman and Earle Brown, both composers that continue to inspire the aesthetic and notational approaches we find so stimulating. Varying interpretations of Brown’s Four Systems will be heard in between works by Feldman, including The O’Hara Songs, Last Pieces for Piano, and Bass Clarinet and Percussion.

Preconcert lecture by Dr. Ryan Dohoney, Morton Feldman scholar

This concert is produced with support from the
Earle Brown Music Foundation.

a.pe.ri.od.ic is a Chicago-based performance collective featuring post-Cagean notated, acoustic, experimental music. Founded in 2010, a.pe.ri.od.ic’s repertoire explores the indeterminacy of various musical elements including instrumentation, structure, pitch, and/or duration. Drawn to works of sparseness, contemplation, and quietude, this “daring group” (Chicago Reader) focuses on scores primarily notated with prose. Led by Nomi Epstein, the ensemble has commissioned, premiered, and recorded works by composers such as Michael Pisaro, Eva-Maria Houben, Jurg Frey, James Saunders, and Pauline Oliveros. a.pe.ri.od.ic released its debut album, more or less, featuring the music of Jurg Frey in 2014 under New Focus Recordings.
