Jane Rigler (USA), feat. Thomas Buckner (USA), Jone Takamäki and Juho Laitinen

  • Vapaan taiteen tila 15 Vilhonvuorenkuja Helsinki, 00500 Finland (map)

Flutist, composer, and improviser Jane Rigler creates pieces that play with hidden languages, recall ancestral songs, incorporate playful game techniques and ask the performers to imagine and improvise. In this concert Jane will perform original works such as the calling (2013), which connects her concern for people, languages, environmental awareness, animals and nature using sounds she collects during her travels. She will also re-perform various pieces from her album, Rarefactions (Neuma, 2015) that juxtaposes dense, breathtaking agility on the instrument with subtle, intimate, practically inaudible resonances as they travel through the flute tube.

Baritone Thomas Buckner, our old friend, will perform Karen Power's Quack Moo Sigh, a recent work where the performer improvises with a recorded and processed version of himself.

Multi-instrumentalist Jone Takamäki and cellist Juho Laitinen will then join in for a group improvisation.

Tickets: 0€ for students of the Art University, 5€ for other students, 10–30€ for everyone else ("pay what you wish").
