aim of this concert is to present a small but vital snapshot of the LA
contemporary music scene, the composers who take part in keeping it moving
forward, and the manner in which they are engaging the aesthetics and
(counter-)traditions of electric guitar music

Sat May 8 The Paul Bailey Ensemble

The evening will include the premiere of a four-movement extended
choral piece, Retrace our Steps, commissioned by
the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts. Based on a variety of
texts by Gertrude Stein, Guy Debord, and Jenny Bitner, the work
explores the relationships between youthful idealism, consumerism
and job security. Mezzo-soprano Nicole Baker, who serves on
the faculty at Cal State Fullerton, will be featured in the work.

Another Paul Bailey work on the program, Summerland, juxtaposes
popular song forms and harmonies against post-modern and
minimalist gestures.

Chopping Tool, by Sean Ferguson,
reconstitutes the harmonies of a Chopin Piano Prelude through an
agro-minimalist machine.

The eclectic nine-member Paul Bailey Ensemble
(2 violins, cello, electric guitar, electric bass, synthesizer,
vibraphone, bass clarinet and trombone) brings together musicians
from the rock and classical worlds. Members perform with a variety
of local professional organizations, ranging from the Los Angeles
Master Chorale and the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra to the
Pacific Symphony and the Los Angeles Opera
