CRS (Center for Remembering & Sharing) kicks off its music series in 2012 with MUSIC SHOW & TELL #11: Ixos, a concert organized by clarinetist and multi-media artist Krista Martynes. The performance (approximately 55' in duration) will incorporate movement direction by choreographer Kristin Hatleberg, sound art by Adam Basanta and dance by Ms. Hatleberg and Janet Aisawa.
Fascinated by different ingredients of simple boundaries, Ms. Martynes, Ms. Hatleberg and the Japanese-American Ms. Aisawa have collaborated on various projects centered on the symmetrical axis of movement and sound. Ixos is a cyclical production, inspired loosely by bird songs (Ixos is a type of song bird) wherein the four artists envelope the improv-generated compositions of Giacinto Scelsi with their own sound and movement improvisation, including intensification of simple timbres and rhythmic exchanges.
MUSIC SHOW & TELL is a curated live music series that provides a chamber-music like setting for the performance and discussion of mostly acoustic music, primarily of international origin, including world music, early music, classical and jazz, "new" music, and multi-disciplinary collaborations with video or dance artists.
Krista Martynes is a multi-media clarinetist who brings new life to standard and new repertoire.
