“Sounding Limits” features a series of compositions resulted from a long-term collaboration between the French composer Pascale Criton and the Italian string players Silvia Tarozzi & Deborah Walker. Silvia Tarozzi, violin, and Deborah Walker, cello, are actively involved in the fields of contemporary experimental music and free improvisation. Together with Pascale Criton they have been exploring microtonal extended techniques and gestural processes on a violin and a cello tuned in 1/16 of a tone. The compositions that have resulted from this process are conceived as scripts. They challenge the sense of form and the attitude of interpretation, transforming it into a creative process. Time and motion are no longer defined by pitches and metrical systems but are embodied as diagrams and moods. Ms. Criton’s presentation is made possible with the support of the SACEM, the SPEDIDAM, and the Itstituto Italiano di Cultura.

Ctrl-Z is a live electronics trio dedicated to the performance of composed music for live electronics. The program will showcase hugely important yet often overlooked contributions to the history of electronic music by women alongside new pieces written by non-cis-male composers working on the cutting edge of experimental electronic and electroacoustic music. Two new works, commissioned specifically for Ctrl-Z’s fall concert series, will be performed, along with two classic electronic compositions. We also have a lecture prepared regarding the interpretation of scored works for electronics, including our work interpreting Cage, Oliveros, Harrison, Ferrari and works created for or by members of the group. It will feature patch sketches, as well as pictures, videos and audio from previous shows.
