The Rewire x Korzo concert series returns after the summer with three electro-acoustic performances that pave the way to new horizons.
Jon Gibson is an American minimalist composer and musician based in New York City. As a founding member, Gibson has been performing in the Philip Glass Ensemble for the past 45 years. His composition Visitations is a minimalist masterpiece. Gibson’s first release under his own name, Visitations is a departure from the structured repetition of his minimalist peers and takes the listener on an aural journey – spanning organic field recordings, ambient flutes, percussion, synthesizers, and free-flowing textures. With his new ensemble, Gibson re-imagines the piece with modular synthesizers, quadrophonic sound, and a film entitled “One Way” depicting the California desert. In the film, which Gibson shot in the early 1970’s, the seemingly never ending desert landscape of America perfectly reflects the expanse of Visitations and takes the audience alongside a ritualistic road trip unlike any other.
Andrea Belfi is a drummer, composer and experimental musician. Artfully blending the acoustic with the electronic, his performances are equal parts energetic and hypnotic, featuring long-arching soundscapes that are rich and immersive. A live performer at heart, Belfi’s music comes to life on stage where he’s built a reputation for electrifying drum solos and off the cuff improvisations. Earlier this year, Andrea Belfi released his new studio album Ore. Belfi is also known for his performances with Nils Frahm’s Nonkeen project.
Tara Transitory aka One Man Nation embraces performance as an explicit expression against the prefabrication of culture: “I do not make music per se, I create experiences, I try bring people on a trip out of our reality through performance and the use of sounds.”
