Iktus is thrilled to conclude what has been an excellent concert series this year at The Firehouse Space in Brooklyn with an action-packed evening on Friday, June 7 at 8pm featuring the chamber group Hotel Elefant, handbell chior/homemade instrument collective Ashcan Orchestra, piano/percussion duo What Where, and a performance of Cage's Credo in US by members of Iktus+.
Hotel Elefant is a contemporary music ensemble dedicated to the works of innovative, living composers.
Formed in 2011 by composers Leaha Maria Villarreal and Mary Kouyoumdjian, Hotel Elefant ambitiously presents new music through commissions, performances, and moderated discussions between composers, performers, and audiences. Committed to modern sounds and sonic explorations, this vibrant ensemble brings a keen awareness of today’s music to the general public and highlights those living composers who are blurring lines, pushing boundaries, and fostering creativity.
With a flexible roster of more than twenty musicians, Hotel Elefant has worked closely with such progressive composers as Michael Gordon, David T. Little, Michelle Lou, Angélica Negrón, and Chinary Ung. Future collaborations include partnerships with Experiments in Opera, IKTUS percussion, and Opera on Tap. The ensemble’s debut sparked the interest of Alex Ross’ The Rest is Noise, radio station Q2 Music, and The New Yorker. Of their inaugural season, the online publication I Care if You Listen raved: “Hotel Elefant seems to be carving out their own niche, combining style, versatility, and quality of performance. They are well on their way to becoming a resounding force in the new music world.”
The ashcan “Orchestra” is simultaneously the work of composer Pat Spadine, a large collection of toy and real instruments, and a revolving performance ensemble based in Brooklyn, NY.
What Where is a piano/percussion duo consisting of Julia Den Boer and Piero Guimaraes. They will perform Edges by Franck Bedrossian.
Iktus+ will perform John Cage's quartet for piano, percussion and radio Credo in US.
