Sō Percussion

ANGÉLICA NEGRÓN go back and gone (Bay Area Premieres)
NATHALIE JOACHIM Note to Self (Bay Area Premiere)
DAN TRUEMAN neither Anvil nor Pulley

The singular new-music ensemble Sō Percussion, celebrated for its “exhilarating blend of precision and anarchy, rigor and bedlam” (The New Yorker), plays two concerts highlighting three millennial voices that are part of an inspiring generation of women composers revitalizing the contemporary music landscape. In this quartet’s first visit, two short pieces by Puerto Rican-born composer Angélica Negrón explore interactions between the quartet’s percussion instruments and pre-programmed electronic noisemakers, and Nathalie Joachim’s Note to Self combines pre-recorded loops of her own voice with virtuosic percussion writing as a way of processing her chronic anxiety. 

Sō Percussion will engage in a post-concert Q&A with Cal Performances executive and artistic director Jeremy Geffen. Free to all ticket holders. 

Run time for this concert is approximately 90 minutes, including intermission, but not including any possible encores.

This event is part of Cal Performances’ Illuminations: “Human and Machine” programming for the 2022–23 season.
