pulse-echo recorded by Jason Hardink and
the JACK Quartet
This October pianist Jason Hardink
and the JACK Quartet recorded
pulse-echo, a work written for Jason and commissioned by
the Koussevitzky Foundation. The work pulse-echo derives its title, in
part, from a quote by Arnold Schoenberg: “Art is the cry of distress of
those who personally experience the fate of mankind. Within themselves
they carry the pulse of the world and only an echo reaches the outside.
And that echo is the work of art.” The title is also a reference to the
onset of attacks, their decay, and the play of reiterative and timbral
continuities that were the conceptual genesis of the piece.
Testify commissioned by New Music USA for
Testify, the final part of the triptych Passage, for string
quartet and interactive lighting, has been commissioned by New Music
USA for the JACK Quartet.
Passage takes as its inspiration those who have survived trauma and
oppression, turning horrific experience into positive vehicles for
understanding and healing through word and action. The work locates its
public in a provocative space where it might consider the implications
of the subject matter the work confronts. Read more about the project here.
