Mary Ellyn Hutton:
Monday evening in “concert:nova Garden,” an un-renovated space on the ground floor of the Metaphor Building, the lights were on — and in some highly creative ways. The program was exacting and mostly contemporary, including music by George Crumb, Toru Takemitsu, Andre Jolivet, George Tsontakis and Arvo Pärt.
The concert began with Gregorian chant. With blue light playing on the back wall, a choir of 14 led by Ken Lam and Matthew Peattie sang “O Oriens,” an antiphon for December 21 (date of the Winter Solstice) and “Domine Deus virtutem.”
A bit of theater followed, with flutist Randolph Bowman, cellist Theodore Nelson and pianist Julie Spangler donning black masks for Crumb’s 1971 “Vox Balaenae (“Voice of the Whale”) for Three Masked Players.” Crumb specified masks to try to distance the work from the human realm and amplified instruments to help evoke the undersea world. Videos of sea life by Woodman projected onto a large screen adjacent to the players accompanied the performance.
