Livewire 11: Ruckus


Earl and Darielle Linehan Concert Hall

Date & Time

October 21, 2021, 7:30 pm9:00 pm


The Livewire 11: Rewired new music festival, hosted annually by the Department of Music, opens with the Ruckus faculty new music ensemble.

The program, entitled Presence, features music by Robert Morris, Jo Kondo, Robert Carl, Amy Williams, Olly Wilson, and Viet Cuong. Ranging from solo voice with electronics to sextet, the works on this program explore the real-time dialogue central to chamber music: from the intertwined lines of Morris’s Traces and Carl’s Waterlight to the delicate timbral interplay of Kondo’s Aquarelle to the tenor voice in dialogue with itself in Wilson’s Sometimes.

The Ruckus new music ensemble has been featured in performances at Stanford University, the New England Conservatory of Music, the Smithsonian Institution, the Baltimore Museum of Art, and other noted venues.

$15 general admission, $10 for senior citizens, and $5 for students. (This event is free for UMBC Department of Music students, faculty and staff.)
