Space on White – New York, NY
Get a sneak peek into ETHEL’s upcoming premiere of “Cross Avenue” – an atmospheric and electronic sound fields coupled with acoustic music by Netherland-based composers Jeroen Strijbos & Rob van Rijswijk. In “Cross Avenue” (to be performed throughout the Netherlands 11/6 – 11/9) the composers Strijbos & Van Rijswijk explore the extremes of the dynamic possibilities of ETHEL and reveal how the different instruments can relate to each other.
In “Cross Avenue” the sound created by the strings will be saved, explored, re-worked and re-introduced in such a way that the original sound source and its new variant combine to form a new sound entity. The strings and the electronics become a seamless extension of each other. Further, Strijbos & Van Rijswijk employ spatialisation (sound divided over the space), an important audible element which propels the composition in further developing its expression.Erwin
