Ent by Christoffer Schunk published on 2012/08/26 03:59:49 +0000 This was a piece written for the CalArts NCP Ensemble, conducted by David Rosenboom. It was performed on April 16, 2012, in the Roy O. Disney Hall. The word Ent is extracted from the word interference. In the piece, there are "movers" with the intention to help explore the aesthetic of intrusion. Although their primary purpose is to act as percussionists, their physical presence and movements may alter the listener's attentiveness to and perception of the music. The sounds they create jump to the foreground, despite the dynamics. The traditional instrumentalists are also interfering amongst themselves, separated by register, thereby creating a conglomeration of disruption.
