ASM Presents Ghost Ensemble

Anti-Social Music and Ghost Ensemble present an evening of recent commissions exploring cellophane, patternicity, breath cycles, and inflating arboreal harmonica-playing sound sculptures!

Featuring the world premiere of Carl Bettendorf’s Variations on 4x25 Notes (2022-23) and the New York premiere of Miya Masaoka’s Spirals of Energy (2023). Two other recent commissions by ensemble-member composers, Sky Macklay’s Harmonifriends and James Ilgenfritz’s Apophenia V: Outmoded Large Crumbling Oval Lime-Green Midwestern Plastic-Frame Reading Glasses, receive their second New York performances. Also on the program is Caroline Louise Miller’s Vessel (2013).
