STEIM & OT301 Presents
EAR Duo with EMMI Robot Collective
EAR Duo with EMMI
Founded in 2005 by saxophonist Michael Straus and bassoonist Dana Jessen, the EAR (Electro Acoustic Reed) Duo is dedicated to the performance of new, improvised and experimental electroacoustic music. Recently praised by the Boston Music Intelligencer for performing "with conviction and authenticity," the duo can regularly be seen presenting a variety of works ranging from new commissions written specifically for them, to original arrangements of works by Terry Riley, Steve Reich and James Tenney. Attempting to stretch the limits of duo performance, their concerts include aspects of theater coupled with visual and electronic media. Aside from performing on their respective instruments, the duo's repertoire has recently expanded to incorporate Tibetan singing bowls, squeaky toys, reusable/recyclable objects and more.
The EAR Duo is currently engaged in commissioning a series of interactive wind, string and percussion robots from EMMI (Expressive Machines Musical Instruments).
