Event Details & Description

Alarm Will Sound returns to the 560 Music Center on February 1st with world premieres of music by A. Pyper and Lucrecia Dalt as well as Hexactinellida by Chelsea Komschlies. A. Pyper joins Alarm Will Sound as singer and violinist for the world premiere of her new work, Descansos. Descansos are roadside memorials that mark where a loved one has died. Pyper’s work reflects on the composer’s own life experience growing up as a gay woman in a Mormon family, and trying to mark and move on from those spots in life where loss and trauma have occurred. They are one of the first recipients of support from Alarm Will Sound’s Matt Marks Impact Fund, the goal of which is to support new work that may not otherwise receive funding because of systemic barriers to unconventional work or under-represented artists.

Lucrecia Dalt is an electronic musician who began her career as a civil engineer in Columbia but moved to Spain and then Germany to pursue her interest in avant-garde sound. Dalt collaborates with Alarm Will Sound via Alarm System, a program to interface with musicians who create compelling work in non-classical ways such as through improvisation, electronics, or oral transmission.

Chelsea Komschlies’s music has been said to possess an “ingratiating allure” (San Diego Story). Her work springs from spontaneous subconscious mental imagery, and she combines musical elements from across time and tradition, from ancient to modern and from the traditional to the strange, to trigger the same in her listeners. One of her goals is that listeners make deep, instinctual associations with her music, be they emotional, visual, or otherwise abstract. Hexactinellida was premiered by Alarm Will Sound at the 2019 Mizzou International Composers Festival in Columbia, MO. The title refers to a class of ancient, unusual deep sea sponges whose skeletons are composed of a complex lattice of six-pointed spicules made of silica, earning them the name “glass sponges.”
