New Pieces and Springtime Premieres

Leave a comment

2015 has already been an extremely productive year. I have composed two new pieces with premieres scheduled in April and May!

The Inhibitors, written for pianist Mabel Kwan, is a study in frustration and irregularity. When a pattern or melody begins to emerge, it is thwarted and immediately stamped out. This piece will premiere on April 1st at Southeastern Louisiana University and April 3rd on the Versipel New Music concert at Cafe Istanbul.

I also recently completed a vocal trio for Accordant Commons called Palus. This piece capturesĀ the essence of being in the cypress swamps of Louisiana, truly one of the most beautiful and magical ecosystems on the planet. This work is scheduled to be premiered in May on Microfest, an annual celebration of microtonal music in Los Angeles.

Kari Besharse is a composer of both electroacoustic and acoustic music. She is interested in finding new ways to combine and share ideas and materials between the two mediums through a cross-fertilization of processes and ideas. Inspired by the sounds and processes inherent in the natural world, timbre, texture, and sound are essential players in her works, which are often generated from a group of sonic objects or material archetypes that undergo processes of rupture, degradation, alternation, and expansion.
