Marlboro Slipstream Group, featuring Marlboro music faculty Matan Rubinstein and three artists-in-residence.
Cellist Jake Charkey is classically trained—in both Western and Indian Hindustani traditions—and has spent many years working a wide gamut of musical idioms in several continents, and is at home in both concert stage and recording studio.
Percussionist Andrew Greenwald received his PhD in music composition from Stanford and is a founding member of Ensemble Pamplemousse. He has enjoyed a career both as a contemporary concert music composer and as a drummer in jazz and improvised music contexts.
Ned Rothenberg, who plays alto saxophone, clarinet, bass clarinet, and shakuhachi—a Japanese bamboo flute—is internationally acclaimed for both his solo and ensemble music. He uses an expanded palette of sonic language that creates a kind of personal idiom all its own.
Pianist Matan Rubinstein is active in a variety of contexts and venues, from works for orchestra and chamber groups (with and without electronics) to jazz orchestras and combos, as well as projects for dance, film, television, and interactive media.
The program will include the world premiere of Terraplane, a multi-movement composition that is a tongue-in-cheek throwback to the Romantic era form of the tone poem. Inspired by Jack Womack’s dystopian science fiction novel by the same title and written for the ensemble by Rubinstein, the piece brings together an angry blend of electronic music, improvisation, and composition.
