Helen Newby – Cello & Electronics
May 31, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Helen Newby presents some of her recent works for cello and electronics. Helen continually seeks ways to expand the technical and expressive boundaries of her instrument through close collaboration with other innovative performers, composers, and artists. Her passion for collaboration and experimentation has led her to work with a number of both emerging and established composers, including Steve Reich, Chaya Czernowin, Marcos Balter, Sabrina Schroeder, Ashley Fure, and Marek Poliks, among others. Her premiere solo album, Dialogue, featuring commissions by David Bird, Danny Clay, Adam Hirsch, Kurt Isaacson, and Haley Shaw, was released in early 2017 on Ephemeral Stream Recordings. She has performed with and alongside ensembles such as the JACK Quartet, San Francisco Contemporary Music Players, Eco Ensemble, Real Vocal String Quartet, One Found Sound, and the Barnes Ensemble, among others. She is a founding member of Amaranth Quartet and Chartreuse. Recent and upcoming collaborations with pop, electronic and indie artists include Magik*Magik Orchestra, Diana Gameros, Kendra McKinley, and Aish, among others.
