No Exit New Music Ensemble performs a wonderful evening of new work at Arts Collinwood Gallery this Saturday, April 16.
The performance begins at 7pm, and is FREE and Open to the Public.
No Exit is gearing up for itâ€™s most ambitiousÂ series of concerts yet. The group was formed by ClevelandÂ composer Timothy Beyer to serve as an outlet for the commissionÂ and performance of contemporary avant-garde concert music.
â€œ Weâ€™ve placed a strong focus on championing the work of both
talented young composers and spotlighting local composers who
represent the best that our region has to offer,â€ explains Beyer.
â€œOur goal is to present exciting programs to Northeast Ohioans,
music theyâ€™ve most likely never heard before. We really want to
challenge our listeners to experience music in a different way.â€
To that end, No Exitâ€™s April series of concerts promises to be a
truly unique musical happening. Beyer says, â€ With this program
we want to create an environment in which our patrons can really
become immersed in whatâ€™s going on.â€
The concerts will feature works by Morton Feldman, Andrew
Rindfleisch, Nicholas Underhill, Timothy Beyer, Kaija Saariaho
and two world premieres, both commissioned for No Exit – Steve
Antoscaâ€™s electro-acoustic piece Exit and a multi-media
collaboration between composers James Praznik and Derrik
Balogh titled Almost a New Man.
