Percussionists DeLane Doyle and Aaron Gochberg expand on their contemporary-classical experiments. Info


Two percussionists who've studied at UW-Madison, DeLane Doyle and Aaron Gochberg have both established diverse early-career track records inside and outside of contemporary classical music: Gochberg plays in the Acoplados Latin Jazz Project, and Doyle has experimented with improvisational performances that incorporate electronics They'll continue to explore the intersection of percussion and electronics in their work as Filament Duo, while also mining the works of contemporary composers. Even though this is already a good weekend for contemporary classical music in Madison, thanks to the Madison New Music Festival, it's worth heading to the Terrace for this show. The two are aiming for an accessible look at their work here, playing original compositions alongside music by composers including Andy Akiho, Mark Applebaum, Anna Ignatowicz, Juri Seo, Alyssa Weinberg, and Wally Gunn. The Seo piece, "Wah," sounds particularly adventurous: Filament Duo's program for the show describes it as "Terry Riley’s In C, but for two wah wah tubes, much shorter, and nothing like In C." —Scott Gordon
