Houston’s artist-led, artist-curated Kinetic Ensemble opens its 2022-2023 season with three unique perspectives on our natural world by three exciting, emerging composers. Patrick Harlin’s The Wilderness Anthology combines Kinetic’s live performance with pre-recorded audio soundscapes, captured in parts of the Amazon Rainforest and in the Book Cliffs region of the United States. This piece focuses our attention both on the relationship between wilderness and music, and on the impacts of human disruption on our world’s ecosystems. Nicky Sohn’s What Happens When Pipes Burst? recalls the big Winter Freeze of 2021 and its impact on the lives and communities of those in Houston. And Paul Novak’s a string quartet is like a flock of birds, first performed virtually by Kinetic during 2020, will finally receive its first premiere live performance this evening. This season opener will be a fully immersive sound experience; a musical meditation on our natural world, which ever surrounds and inspires us.
