And Flights of Angels Sing Thee To Thy Rest is an extended duration performance of four ambient solo guitar pieces. They are very simple pieces, each in an open tuning, and all of them played into a huge reverb. The combination of the overtones created by the open, ringing strings and the dense acoustics of the massive chamber creates surprising spectral effects – the sounds of distant voices, flutes, and other instruments seem to materialise like a hallucination or something half-remembered from a dream.
This work began with a single piece created in memory of David Gamper and first performed at Roulette in New York City.
This performance will include the world premier of a new piece in the series.
Due to the extended duration of this performance, audience members are encouraged to bring cushions and mats to sit and lie on the floor, and are free to come and go throughout the evening.
