  • Collapsing Borders and Boundaries | Stanford Live
    And he bridged these two worlds one anchored in poetry and connecting stories with music the other abstract for instruments alone by revisiting some of his famous melodies in the latter The Quartet No 13 in fact gets its name from recycling a theme Schubert had used for the incidental music he composed for a play called Rosamunde Turning my song into the string quartet piece Bradbury Studies is a very Schubertian thing to do in the sense that he was looking for ways to translate his language as a songwriter into his instrumental works especially in the last three string quartets beginning with the Rosamunde Kahane points out Schubert finds a way to transcend simply transcribing song melodies and expands upon them Part of what I want to do with this program is to draw those connections explicitly including in his own journey from song to instrumental composition so that listeners will hear the new string quartet piece as a deconstruction of materials from the song Not only are the members of Brooklyn Rider Kahane s neighbors but they also share his omnivorous aesthetic and are equally comfortable playing Schubert or Brazilian grooves and have a real sense of the vernacular Kahane too says he has little patience for conversations about genre I m always trying to collapse those boundaries whether we are talking about music or theater or film or architecture Today there s a great deal of talk about hybridity and that s just a natural outgrowth of the porous borders of what artists are exploring ENTER DJ KID KOALA Another example of a creative and thoroughly unclassifiable hybrid that should not be missed comes to Bing Concert Hall on February 4 when celebrity DJ Kid Koala and the Afiara Quartet present their remarkable collaboration Nufonia Must Fall Based in Montreal Kid Koala aka Eric San has earned a fan base with global reach among devotees of dance club music hip hop and graphic novels alike for his polymathic talents Nufonia Must Fall actually originated as an expansive graphic novel published in 2003 accompanied by a CD soundtrack San crafted for his sci fi narrative of a music loving robot who confronts becoming obsolete and struggles with articulating his newfound love The live performance adaptation premiered at Toronto s Luminato Festival in 2014 and the Stanford date is part of the show s current U S tour San has been innovating the art of turntablism with his quirky imagination since he began DJing at the age of 12 I liked the sound of scratching and being able to manipulate a ring of words on a piece of vinyl and to get it to change rhythm or say something else making it into an expressive instrument he says Yet even an original like Kid Koala was surprised when the stage show Nufonia Must Fall began to take shape None of us had done anything like this before says San referring to the extraordinary challenges he and the Juilliard

    present Kahane who was born in California explained in an interview with the Los Angeles Times I had this growing affection for the city and I wanted to work through it artistically For me L A had been the relative I didn t know very well and hadn t made the effort the second cousin I saw every five years at the family reunion One of the songs Bradbury 304 Broadway provides the source material for a piece entitled Bradbury Studies a loving deconstruction for string quartet that was dedicated to Brooklyn Rider The Bradbury of both titles refers to the iconic and sui generis fin de siècle building in downtown L A writes Kahane which is prominently featured in the 1982 cult classic Blade Runner a film whose plot setting and characters provided great inspiration for the original song Bradbury Studies will be featured on Brooklyn Rider s new recording with Kahane The Fiction Issue his first album of chamber music due out in February The title is based on the New Yorker s annual issue of that name Also on the album is the song cycle based on poems by Matthew Zapruder entitled Come On All You Ghosts selections of which will be heard at Bing Of a recent performance at Zankel Hall the New York Times wrote Mr Kahane s smoky earnest baritone suited both the words and their setting and the string quartet Brooklyn Rider was strikingly alert to matters of nuance and mood In addition the wide ranging musical evening features pieces from Brooklyn Rider s own eclectic repertoire including the Brooklyn Rider Almanac and Schubert s great Rosamunde Quartet Both composers Schubert and Kahane use the medium of songwriting to expand their works to a grander scale Brooklyn Rider s violist Nicholas Cords explains
