Alarm Will Sound returns to Artpark with engaging, otherworldly sounds. This performance includes Eartheater‘s When Fire is Allowed to Finish, Black Origami by electronic artist Jlin (arr. Kim and Thompson), Atomic Theory III: “Electron Orbits” by King Britt and Marcos Balter, and T69 Collapse by Aphex Twin (arr. Stefan Freund).
When Fire is Allowed to Finish is centered around historical accounts of personal loss. Eartheater distills foley-filled digital production and classical composition into works suspended between reckless romanticism and detailed sonic tapestries. When Fire is Allowed to Finish contains six emotionally charged movements. The music is fearlessly expressive, lush, and emotional — bound to jolt even the most jaded listener. For this project, composers Aaron Parker, Steve Snowden, and Conrad Winslow were enlisted to orchestrate Eartheater’s musical ideas.
