Dark Matter at the Chapel Performance Space

March 25 2014

I'm excited to announce that this Saturday March 29th at 8pm I will be part of a fantastic night of experimental music and video at the Chapel Performance Space.

Check out the trailer for Dark Matter which will debut with the score by Leaha Maria Villarreal performed live.

The official press release is below and you can access the digital invite here.

The Box is Empty presents new works by Seattle composer Nat Evans and New York-based composer Leaha Villarreal.

Evans has collaborated with writer Chelsea Werner-Jatzke and a team of lens-based artists to create a new work for chamber ensemble, field recordings, spoken text and a series of videos. More Comfort explores the evolution of our relation to different screens in our lives, mobile devices and televisions as a hearth place, and the nature of our contemporary interactions and language. The videos presented are by artist Rodrigo Valenzuela with additional video curation by Interstitial Theatre’s Julia Greenway.

Villareal presents a series of works for strings: a quartet originally written for the JACK Quartet, a septet, and a new trio. The quartet is inspired by Samuel Beckett’s Happy Days. Seattle artist Erin Elyse Burns will present a new video Dark Matter with Villarreal’s music. In addition to composing, Villarreal is also the artistic director of Hotel Elefant, which regularly presents contemporary music across New York City.
