Cymerman

Saturday, June 20, 2015, 8:00 p.m.
Venue: CentralTrak
Admission: Free
Season: 2014-15

 

CentralTrak presents their ongoing CentralSounds series with a program of experimental music curated by the Denton group Ex Mus featuring Jeremiah Cymerman with guests Joshua Westerman, Ryan Fellhauer, and Mike Morris.  Composer, clarinetist and genre-breaker Jeremiah Cymerman will perform June 20th at 8:00 pm at Centraltrak as part of his national tour.  His work has been described as “striking a compelling balance between hallucinatory sound sculpting and the immediacy of improvised music” and has worked with John Zorn, Nate Wooley and Brian Chase. Local composer/performers Ryan Fellhauer and Josh Westerman, and filmmaker Mike Morris will contribute to the exciting evening with additional compositions. 

Composer, clarinetist, producer and sound engineer Jeremiah Cymerman (pronounced SIMMER-man) has been described as “an impenitent genre-breaker whose membership among today’s greats must be granted now” (Massimo Ricci, Touching Extremes).  Frequently using the recording studio as a primary compositional tool, Cymerman’s work reflects a passionate interest in improvisation, electronic manipulation & production, traditional, studio & graphic composition as well as solo clarinet performance and ensemble performance.  Having worked with a broad range of contemporary artists including Toby Driver, John Zorn, Nate Wooley, Brian Chase, Evan Parker, Mario Diaz de Leon,  Jandek, Anthony Coleman, Joe Morris and Matthew Welch, Cymerman has toured internationally, received numerous commissions and published several articles on music and music production in publications such as Tape-Op magazine and the acclaimed Arcana book series, edited by John Zorn.

 

 

ABOUT CENTRALTRAK

CentralTrak, The University of Texas at Dallas Artists Residency, established in 2008, is dedicated to the creation, presentation, and advancement of the contemporary arts.  As a live/work space for eight artists, it serves as a community center in the North Texas area for broad intellectual discourse around the arts.  While the residency promotes artistic experimentation through its support of production, the companion gallery encourages critical engagement in a local urban context through exhibitions and related programs. By building on the forward-thinking academic resources of the School of Arts & Humanities at The University of Texas at Dallas, CentralTrak unites artists from an expansive range of creative disciplines to extend and challenge contemporary notions of artistic practice, creative expression, and the role technology plays in these processes.

 

CentralTrak is supported in part by the generosity of numerous donors and partners from the North Texas area and The University of Texas at Dallas.
