Ben Zucker presents: ( )hole complex

February 2 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The performance of ( )hole complex celebrates the composer Ben Zucker’s album release.

Join us for an immersive experience at the edge of concert, installation, and meditation, with duo Garden Unit (Julia Ansolabahere, clarinet; Cameron Roberts, saxophone) and new electronic interventions performed live by the composer.

This performance celebrates the release of ( )hole complex (per​/​formance​/​eration), now out on Sawyer Editions. The eponymous composition by Ben Zucker is a foray into unpredictable collages of notation and instruction—a study in the decoherence of musical identity over extended periods of time, where no performance is ever the same twice. The piece was commissioned by boundary-pushing chamber duo Garden Unit (Julia Ansolabahere, clarinet; Cameron Roberts, saxophone), who will use the full space of the Museum’s second floor to create an immersive experience at the edge of concert, installation, and meditation, with new electronic interventions performed live by the composer.
