- Carolina Eyck + American Contemporary Music Ensemble
December 2 at 3:30
West Building, West Garden Court
Theremin virtuoso and composer Carolina Eyck joins the American Contemporary Music Ensemble for the Washington, DC, premiere of their collaborative project, Fantasias, which was released to critical acclaim on Butterscotch Records in 2016. For the project, Eyck composed six minimalist-inspired string quartet pieces, over which she improvises a solo theremin part. With these pieces, Eyck strives to “sonically investigate the interplay between nature and human imagination.” Eyck’s musically daring and physically challenging compositions defy easy classification, while her uncanny mastery of the theremin and use of electronic effects bring an authentically fresh sonic pallet to the forefront.
