PERFORMANCE: Gordon Beeferman + Stephanie Griffin

Composer/performers Gordon Beeferman (piano) and Stephanie Griffin (viola) present an eclectic program of contemporary solo and duo music that often blurs the boundaries between composed and improvised traditions and practices. The program includes Tunnel Visions, Beeferman’s sprawling four-movement duo written for Griffin. Jumping off from their shared work in Beeferman’s avant-jazz Other Life Forms quartet, the piece is a harrowing and rhythmically rigorous journey through microtonal, cinematic landscapes. The program also includes Morton Feldman’s The Viola in My Life (3). Feldman was instrumental in the development of indeterminacy in music, a groundbreaking concept associated with the experimental New York School of composers, including John Cage, Christian Wolff, Earle Brown, and David Tudor.
