Ekmeles: Primo Libro
November 20th at 7:30PM, Ekmeles returns to live performance at Our Saviours Atonement, with a program of microtonal music. Vaccination and masks required. The concert will then be repeated at Bowling Green State University November 22nd.

The program includes a world premiere by Shawn Jaeger, playing with the boundaries between words and their meanings. James Weekss Primo Libro explores the origins of the madrigal through engagement with Arcadelts first book of madrigals, setting them in a 31-tone division of the octave. Nirmali Fenns Pokój w pokoju takes a different approach to microtonality, setting each half of the ensemble in a different tuning system. Stuart Saunders Smith presents a jewel of a miniature with the duet Light. Finally, Anthony Braxtons Composition no. 255 presents a rich and monumental environment for performance, blurring lines between interpretation and improvisation.
