Tenor Soloist in Brian Baumbusch's "The Pressure" (premiere) at Other Minds Festival

  • Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco 701 Mission Street San Francisco, CA, 94103 United States (map)

With support from the Wallace Alexander Gerbode Foundation, Other Minds has commissioned California-based composer and instrument builder Brian Baumbusch to write a new evening-length work, The Pressure, for narrator and a varied and eclectic mixed ensemble of instruments and voices.
It features more than 24 performers including The Lightbulb Ensemble and Friction String Quartet, 3 keyboardists, a vocal quartet, and the composer as narrator. Making their debut will be an array of newly created gamelan-style instruments in original tunings. And what results? – a sound palate of shimmering metallophones, a wide variety of keyboards, and the tonal warmth of strings and voices.
