SLP is proud to present the world premier of acclaimed Canadian composer
Ándre Cormier’s ambitious and meditative 90 minute work entitled Á quatre folioles.
Mr. Cormier writes “According to Christian tradition, each leaf of the clover represents one theological virtue. The first leaf is for hope, the second is for faith, and the third is for charity-the fourth leaf would be for luck. Those who survived this fate, did so with the help of each of these leaves.
The Sonic Liberation Players explore new ways of encountering sound.
To offer this experience to a broad range of listeners we play uncommonly heard works and commission new pieces that investigate the area between “academic/intellectual” and “pop influenced” classical music.
The core members of SLP met and performed together at California Institute of the Arts in the early 2Ks. A decade later, having migrated independently to the East Coast (Boston and New York), they reconnected and began this new musical journey together, launching as SLP in 2016. The CalArts “sound” is varied, yet finds roots in the music of John Cage and Morton Feldman. Likewise, the Sonic Liberation Players approach a prismatic variety of composers and music in search of new languages and adventurous musical possibilities.
