Kaethe Hostetter's Impressions of Ethiopia: for solo violin and electronics & Flux Bros
This is a collection of musical vignettes by American violinist and composer Kaethe Hostetter of Ethiopian group QWANQWA. Sourcing from her 11 years living in Addis Ababa, she transports you to the bustling streets of the East African metropolis, evoking the crackling sounds of a saxophone blaring out of a barbershop radio, a shepherd's flute melody turned dub reggae, the fervent dancing on packed dirt floors of a rural honey-wine bar, and the funky big band psychedelic sounds of Ethiopia's "Golden Era".
Flux Bros are the antidote to poisonous artifacts. The flux brothers DESTROY ALL art. Eternal is the flux force. It expels flux. It broils fervently. It jumps willy-nilly. Art isn't ready to accept its own detritus, so we leap into the repertoire again. This performance will last 35 minutes and features Fluxus scores from the 1960s alongside our original works.-Brothers Flux
