Locals Only – Chris Black – Live In Studio 2A
One LP and two EPs of new chamber music be released in a live performance on Friday, September 8th, at 191 Toole in downtown Tucson. All of the music was written over the past few years for the ChamberLab concert series.
Nightmares & Lullabies, the LP, is a collection featuring small combinations of woodwinds and strings. Downtown Suite is all double reed duets, featuring oboe, English horn, bassoon, and contrabassoon. Cooper Must Die is a dark, claustrophobic piece for violin, cello, double bass, and narrator. All three were recorded at Dust and Stone Studio by Gabriel Sullivan.
Performers for the evening will include: Mindi Acosta, flute; Cassandra Bendickson, bassoon; Chris Black, double bass, narration; Samantha Bounkeua, violin; Jessica Campbell, bassoon, contrabassoon; Devin Gardner, oboe, English horn; Anne Gratz, cello; Daniel Hursey, bassoon.
The music will be available for sale online on Saturday, September 9th.
