WMV Special: JUX + Zoulek @ The Kneeland-Walker House
Juxtatonal [JUX], a theatrical new music voice and cello duo, teams up with saxophonist Nick Zoulek to explore the concepts of relevance and vulnerability through a playful yet meaningful contemporary music concert. The program includes new commissions from JUX’s latest Relevance Project and works from both of Zoulek’s albums (“Rushing Past Willow” and “Enter Branch”) in addition to works for all three performers.
JUX aims to legitimize playfulness on stage, find creativity in a recreative art, and connect with audiences through compositions that blur the lines between music, art, and theater. In the spirit of this mission, JUX commissioned 14 composers for new works responding to the concept of relevance. The compositions deal with issues of vulnerability, self, privilege, gender, age, and culture.
In addition to collaborating with JUX to perform three world premieres, Zoulek will share some of his own compositions that include cinematic video projections. He explores new possibilities in saxophone performance, creating visceral tapestries of sound and has been praised as a “no-holds-barred engine of avant-garde exploration,” (Portland Press Herald) and “stunningly virtuosic, whatever the genre” (Wall Street Journal).
