Ion Sound presents a stunning range of new electro-acoustic music in the beautiful space of the Warhol Museum. Mason Bates' "Red River"
conjures a journey down the length of the Colorado River, with cascading water figuration flowing into quicksilver electronica rhythms, and his "From Amber Frozen" offers an indigenous approach to a string quartet. Anna Clyne's "Paint Box" zooms inside the cello, sonically and imaginatively, while Marcos Balter's "Vision Mantra"
stretches out a slow-motion epiphany in an ambient space. The program culminates in Martin Matalon's stunning new score for the classic Luis Bunuel film "Un Chien Andalour," which will be projected onto the museum's walls while the ensemble performs.
Mason Bates is the Music Alive Composer-in-Residence with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. Music Alive is a national residency program of the League of American Orchestras and New Music USA.
