place/displace is about spaces-large and small, acoustic and spatial, synchronistic and anachronistic-and the human experiences placed within and outside of them. The program consists of five works and includes the world premiere of Genoël von Lilienstern's new piece for solo violoncello and electronics.
German composer von Lilienstern spent three months in Los Angeles on a Villa Aurora fellowship last year. His new work was specifically written for this program and poetically derived from his string quartet.
Other works in the program are:
Davor Vincze's bass flute and live electronics work Take your time...hurry-up! (2015-16) L.A. Premiere.
Mu-Xuan Lin figuratively à.. (2018-19) for flute and electronics L.A. Premiere.
The only piece on the program composed before the Twenty-first Century, Luc Ferrari's Madame de Shanghai (1996) performed here in version for solo flute and electronics.
place/displace is a collaborative project that involves artists from Berlin, Paris, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, jointly produced by PIE and Villa Aurora. The program will also feature Paris-based Taiwanese flutist Shao Wei Chou.
