THE MACHINES OF JOHN WHITE / DEDALUS ENSEMBLE (France) + guests (UK)

No Longer Available

To celebrate John White’s 80th birthday, Dedalus Ensemble proposes a selection of John White's Machines. Composed in the 60’s and 70’s, the series combine process music together with post-dadaistic mood illustrating the spirit of the Promenade Theater Orchestra.

“The PT Orchestra! The Orchestra YOU can afford for that extra special occasion! Restful reed-organs, tinkling toy pianos, soothing psalteries, suave swanee whistles, jolly jaw harps - NO noisy electronics! (Just the job for that lazy Sunday afternoon!) All musical material guaranteed thru-composed - NO hit-or-miss improvisation!” – Michel Nyman

Created in 1996, DEDALUS Ensemble is a contemporary experimental music ensemble based in Montpellier, France. Their repertoire gives a large place to flexible scores from across the United States and European New Music from the 1960’s to today. DEDALUS is a collective where every musician collaborate to orchestration and interpretation. DEDALUS is a leading ensemble in France and performs extensively in festivals and concert series across France and Europe. A noted champion of contemporary American experimental music, the Ensemble has premiered works by Tom Johnson, Christian Wolff, Alvin Lucier, Phill Niblock, Frederic Rzewski, James Tenney before French audiences.
