10:00 p.m.- Debussy VII: Reverie-mix
Building on last year’s “Liszt Remix” success, Doug Balliett takes vocal music from the Renaissance and 20th century France and Japan and “remixes” it using contemporary pop and hip-hop language. Featuring instrumentalists and singers, Rêverie-mix examines and re-imagines gems from French and Japanese literature. Music draws from the troubadours, Dufay, Machaut, Debussy, Takemistu, and is performed with singers, instrumental ensemble, koto, live electronics, and rhythm section. This laid-back musical evening will span centuries and bend genres, with music, drinks, and story- telling all designed to remix you, French-Japanese style.
