ABOUT THE PROGRAM:

Delay/Line is a focused study on the effect of simple delays on a gradual glissando from the low to the high range of the flute. Simple in nature, but virtuosic to perform, Delay/Line is a testament to Anne LaBerge's virtuosity as an electro-acoustic performer and improviser. Delay/Line was commissioned by the Barlow Endowment for Music Composition at Brigham Young University.

Utter maps out the emotional and linguistic complexities of mother/child communication. The intimate, innovative setting features Anne La Berge together with 6 iPads that create a two-way guiding system where performer and media discover each other, exploring Utter's rich sonic and visual fabric.

:sunglasses: :selfie: is an attempt to establish the selfie as a mirror between emojis and humans, and as such, the material of the work is meant to straddle the two sides of the medium. In a rather explicit way, the saxophonist assumes the role of an emoji (sometimes wearing the "cool emoji" mask). As an acting emoji, the saxophonist thus represents the "other side" of the medium. However, this should not necessarily be read as the narrative. The concept of an emoji mask is indeed the highlight here. As emojis often mislead readers from one's true emotion, emojis should also be considered a masking device in itself. 😎🤳 is therefore a piece about restraining one's self from unmasking and embracing the digital culture of [positive] fakery.
