Description:

Known for combining noisy textures and conceptual tactics with rhythmically driven electronic pop music, M. C. Schmidt and Drew Daniel have extracted samples from the strangest of sources including laser eye surgery and a five gallon bucket of oatmeal! Having shared the stage with Bjork, Terry Riley, Zeena Parkins, and The Kronos Quartet, these Baltimore-based heavy weights have a lot to share with keen Vancouverites.

Programme Note:
Deus ex machina (1982) Deus ex machina is a kind of “post-script” to some of my earlier electronic music. Since 1975 I have often used a tape-delay system with my instrumental works, nearly always encountering some problems created by accumulating resonances of the performance space. Here such room resonances become an essential part of the piece. The work is in two parts, the first dedicated to Alvin Lucier, the second to John Cage and David Tudor.- Program note by James Tenney
