Time as Revelator

October 14, 2022 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

Rhythm is the pattern of time in music. It makes us move, it maps out our days, and it is intrinsic to the vitality of so many cultures around the world. Time as Revelator celebrates the power of the beat and the passage of time. Not shying away from a steady pulse, and with the occasional futuristic glitch thrown in, the program features original works for instrumental chamber combinations. We also celebrate the 100th anniversary of Xenakis’s birth with the contrapuntal sonic blocks of Plekto (braids), and for the first time perform the work of Cuban-born composer and 2021 Pulitzer Prize winning composer Tania León. Be immersed in funky grooves and toe-tapping rhythms performed by the virtuosic musicians of Ensemble Offspring – and not a drum machine in sight!

Note: all patrons above the age of 16 must present their COVID-19 vaccination certificate upon entry. Patrons aged 12 and above must wear face masks inside the venue.

Ensemble Offspring is committed to ensuring our events are accessible to everyone. Please email admin@ensembleoffspring.com at the time of booking to inform us of any special access needs.
