Filament + Tony Barba + Music on a Long Thin Wire

Filament is a new-music percussion duo seeking to widen the reach of contemporary concert music by exploring the interactions of audience and performer, of sound and space, and of technology and innovation. Filament will be performing original compositions as well as works by Andy Akiho, Dan Langa, and Nate May.

In the fall of 2016, saxophonist Tony Barba released his first solo album, Winter's Arms, which featured his tenor warped and manipulated into ambient loops subtly processed by an array of electronic equipment. Since then, his solo project has evolved from a guerrilla-style set up into a more mature and sophisticated live experience using computer software and midi hardware to generate serene and textured soundscapes. This performance will be a digital record release for Barba's new album, Ether, available exclusively on

This event will also feature a reconstruction of Alvin Lucier's "Music on a Long Thin Wire" (1977) presented by Filament from 7-8pm.
