Alarm Will Sound debuts at the 560 Music Center with a performance highlighting it’s mission to erase boundaries of musical genre. The evening features world premieres of music by MacArthur grant recipient and musical “shapeshifter” (The New Yorker) Tyshawn Sorey and electronic music artist Aphex Twin, as well as a piece by Colombian-American composer José Martinez. Sorey’s music has been noted for its ability to defy categorization by bringing together elements of jazz, new classical music, improvisation, minimalism, and beyond into compelling unified works. Alarm Will Sound’s history with the music of Aphex Twin goes back to Acoustica, their 2009 album featuring arrangements of his music. For the tenth anniversary of that album, Alarm Will Sound musician Stefan Freund has created a new arrangement of the 2018 Aphex Twin track “T69 Collapse.” The evening will also include Danza Tòrridas by José Martinez with whom Alarm Will Sound first collaborated at the Mizzou International Composers Festival held in Columbia, MO.
