Roulette – Brooklyn, NY

Dutch-Welsh composer Jobina Tinnemans is one of the 2013 commissionees for the MATA Festival. Her new work will be presented at Roulette in Brooklyn. On the same night Netherlands based American composer Henry Vega will also perform as part of the “Mechanical Turks: Composers/Performers” evening.

The MATA Festival celebrates its fifteenth year, April 17, 18-20; 2013, showcasing the wild freedom of today’s compositional climate with a sweeping range of original compositions by fifteen up-and-coming composers from nine countries around the globe. MATA has an outstanding track record for spotting new talent: the first three installments alone (1997-99) brought composers such as Jennifer Higdon, Randall Wolff, Lukas Ligeti, and Derek Bermel to greater notice, while later festivals have spotlighted Julia Wolfe, Annie Gosfield, and Nico Muhly, among many others. Festival Directors Todd Tarantino and Yotam Haber received international submissions from a record-breaking number of composers in 2013, confirming MATA’s status as the premier international presenter of emerging talent.

Dutch-American composer and performer Frances-Marie Uitti pioneered a revolutionary dimension to the cello by transforming it for the first time into a polyphonic instrument capable of sustained chordal (two, three, and four-part) and intricate multivoiced writing. Using two bows in one hand, this invention permits contemporaneous cross accents, multiple timbres, contrasting 4-voiced dynamics, simultaneous legato/articulated playing, that her previous work with a curved bow couldn’t attain.
