Liquid Music season wraps up this weekend

Victoire

It’s a big weekend for fans of Liquid Music as the series wraps up its third season. Composer/electric guitarist Noveller, synthpop chanteuse Glasser, and new classical chamber ensemble Victoire will join forces for an evening that explores the sonic intersections of woman and machine, manipulation and composition.

Tonight at Amsterdam Bar and Hall, composer Missy Mazzoli of Victoire will be the featured guest at a Composer Conversation Series event, discussing her Liquid Music project. (Also check out Mazzoli’s recent interview with American Composers Forum president John Nuechterlein.)

The concert itself is tomorrow night at Walker Art Center. A handful of standing-room tickets are still available, but the performance will certainly sell out. More about the performance:

Composer/electric guitarist Noveller, synthpop chanteuse Glasser, and new classical chamber ensemble Victoire join forces for an evening that explores the sonic intersections of woman and machine, manipulation and composition. Hailed as “an orchestra of one” by National Public Radio, Sarah Lipstate (Noveller) conjures dense, sweeping soundscapes from her guitar that “call to attention all senses at once, to the point w here even the word music seems somehow limiting” (Time Out New York). Cameron Mesirow (Glasser) similarly creates “a methodical, computer-tethered expedition into the vast, wild expanse of human feeling,” her commanding voice soaring through her rhythmically-driven melodies to “communicate the unknowable” (Pitchfork). Hailed as a “postmillennial Mozart” by Time Out New York, Victoire founder Missy Mazzoli composes diverse, hypnotic pieces for the group, encompassing rock rhythms, meditative electronics, and classical minimalism, and Victoire’s six virtuoso players perform her work in a manner both “evocative and alluring” (The New York Times). The evening features solo sets from each artists and culminates in a collaborative finale.

We’re incredibly grateful for the loyalty of the Liquid Music series’ fans and supporters. This weekend’s concert will likely continue a season-long streak of sold-out shows, and we look forward to announcing our new season soon.
