Hotel Elefant celebrates spring at Areté Venue and Gallery with a split bill with violin-viola duo andPlay that explores the work of SkyMacklay and Anthony Vine.
The music of composer, oboist, and installation artist Sky Macklay explores bold contrasts, audible processes, humor, and the physicality of sound. Her works have been performed by ensembles such as ICE, Splinter Reeds, Wet Ink Ensemble, Mivos Quartet, Ensemble Dal Niente, The Da Capo Chamber Players, The New York Virtuoso Singers, and Le Nouvel Ensemble Moderne.
Anthony Vine is a composer and guitarist currently living in San Diego, California. His music is characterized by a pluralistic approach to tuning and harmony, drawing on just-intonation, instrumental spectra, and other temperaments. Tones are projected by acoustic instruments and simple waveforms, and cast in immersive forms. The music attempts to engage a reflexive mode of listening, wherein one takes notice of their own perceptual faculties, and begins to perceive themselves listening.
