Fresh Sound: Eric Byers
For this edition of the Fresh Sound series, Eric Byers will perform solo cello and electronics. The chamber musician, soloist, and composer is a member of the Calder Quartet, with whom he has played hundreds of concerts worldwide.
This night, he will be using a computer to sample himself, as he weaves multiple parts together to create a virtual ensemble. Although the scores for his music are composed beforehand, there is no preexisting recorded material and every sound is sampled live during the performance.
Byers’ music has been described as enveloping, soaring and cinematic.
- Cost: $10 - $15
