Schwartz Center for Performing Arts, Flex Theater
430 College Ave, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA
Experimental Sound Series at Cornell presents a residency with Tak Ensemble. Tak will perform new works by Cornell composers María Bulla, Laura Cetilia, Michele Cheng, Matias de Roux, Coral Douglas, Seare Farhat, Michael Li, and James Parker.
Regarded as “one of the most prominent ensembles in the United States practicing truly experimental music” (I Care If You Listen), TAK delivers energetic performances "that combine crystalline clarity with the disorienting turbulence of a sonic vortex” (The WIRE), and “impresses with the organicity of their sound, their dynamism and virtuosity” (New Sounds, WQXR). Founded on the principles of curiosity, change, and caring communication, TAK is dedicated to the commissioning of new works and direct collaboration with composers and other artists, and they have premiered hundreds of works to date. TAK is Laura Cocks, flute; Madison Greenstone, clarinet; Charlotte Mundy, voice; Marina Kifferstein, violin; and Ellery Trafford, percussion.
