fEARnoMUSIC kickstarter nears goal

UPDATE: As of December 8th, the Kickstarter campaign was marked as ‘funded’, which means that the fundraising goal has been met! 

Portland’s fEARnoMUSIC is only dozens of dollars away from their fundraising goal to finish production on their newest recording, “Somewhere I have never traveled, the music of Bonnie Miksch”. I’ve pledged my support, and hope you will, too. Your immediate pledge could put the entire project over the edge into the funded category, and just in time for the holidays!

Here’s a link to the Kickstarter page, and the introductory video is featured below.

fear no piano riot!

The pioneering Portland new music ensemble FearNoMusic will present A Piano Riot!, a concert full of works for multiple grand pianos and percussion, at Kaul Auditorium on the Reed College campus, on Sunday, October 9th at 8 p.m.

The riot in the program title refers to the arrangement of Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring for four pianos and percussion – the Rite famously sparked a riot at its Paris premiere in 1913. Also featured, works by South African composer Sean Naidoo and Polish composer Witold Lutoslawski. The performers include pianists Harold Gray, Susan Smith, Denise VanLeuven and Jeff Payne, as well as guest conductor David Hattner.
