UCSB Resident Ensemble, Now Hear Ensemble, presents Round and Round, May 15th 7.45pm // Old Little Theater, UCSB College of Creative Studies.
Round and Round puts music in motion with a collection of pieces utilizing the most basic form of transportation—the wheel—inspired by Santa Barbara’s favorite means of transportation: the bicycle. In conjunction with National Bike to Work Week, the Now Hear Ensemble will present Mauricio Kagel's "Eine Brise" for 111 cyclists, plus two new works commissioned from Swedish composer Anders Lind and UC Berkeley alumni Dan VanHassel, both of which will make use of Lind’s “Wheel Quintet”—wheel instruments equipped with sensors that control electronic music parameters.
