Music at the Forefront: Collect/Project

Monday, March 4 at 8:00pm to 9:30pm

Moore Musical Arts Center, Bryan Recital Hall
Moore Musical Arts Center, Bowling Green, OH 43403

Innovative quartet Collect/Project will perform a concert of new music on Monday, March 4 at 8 p.m. in Bryan Recital Hall at the Moore Musical Arts Center as part of the Music at the Forefront concert series sponsored by the MidAmerican Center for Contemporary Music. The concert is free and open to the public.

As a transatlantic ensemble based in sister-cities Chicago and Hamburg, Collect/Project specializes in experimental music and performance with an interest in unorthodox and deeply collaborative experiences grounded not only in classical and contemporary performance techniques, but also steeped in popular and folkloric traditions. Described as “intrepid virtuosi refashioning musical experimentation” by George Lewis, Collect/Project seeks to deploy the creativity of the performer beyond what might be considered normal boundaries.

Dedicated specialists and advocates of new music, Collect/Project regularly commissions new works, providing a wider exposure for the music of living composers, and participates in educational residencies with universities and festivals which seek to provide composers and performers an opportunity for experimentation and collaboration. Recent university appearances include the University of Minnesota, University of Illinois, Western Michigan University, University of Central Missouri, Northwestern, and UCBerkeley.

Collect/Project’s flexibility and unique instrumentation has led to collaborations and performances in the US, UK, and Germany, with appearances at the Blurred Edges Festival (Hamburg), Radialsystem (Berlin), Sonic Fusion Festival (Manchester), Ear Taxi Festival (Chicago), and upcoming tours in the United States, Asia and Latin America. 

The collection and projection of the music hidden within a score requires dedicated work of a most sensitive musician to give life to what existed, however intangible, before the committing to paper, and not merely reproduce the symbols on the paper. Collect/Project believes the art of music is desperate for interpreters with courage for such performances. Comprised of Shanna Gutierrez (flutes), Frauke Aulbert (voice), Eva Zöllner (Accordion), and Francisco Castillo Trigueros (electronics), Collect/Project is dedicated to reshaping the way music is created and experienced.

The ensemble will perform works by Christopher Biggs, Lisa Coons, Matthias Leboucher, Neo Hülcker, and Christopher Trapani.

Music at the Forefront is an annual concert series featuring performances by accomplished and innovative performers of contemporary music. For more information contact Kurt Doles at the MidAmerican Center for Contemporary Music (419/372-2685 – kdoles@bgsu.edu).
