5/6 Great Tuba Music w/Carl Ludwig Hubsch
Posted by novoscene on May 6, 2008
Tonight 21 Grand welcomes Avant Garde Tuba player Carl Ludwig Hubsch for a night of improvised play and experimentation with San Francisco’s experimental music ensemble, sfSoundgroup.
Following an improvised duo with local percussionist virtuoso Gino Robair, Mr. Hübsch will lead sfSound in two of his compositions for large ensemble.The sfSoundGroup has been presenting innovative and challenging concerts throughout the Bay Area since 1999. A true 21st century ensemble, the group has an extraordinary roster of Bay Area composers and performers whose virtuosic and “extended” instrumental abilities are equally balanced with their involvement in composition, electronic sound, performance art, computer audio programming, and experimental instrument making.
The group also frequently presents existing work in highly creative “radical transcriptions” blurring the lines between performance, composition, interpretation, and improvisation. Performing as sfSound are: Heather Frasch – flute, Kyle Bruckmann – oboe, Matt Ingalls – clarinets, Jacob Lindsay -clarinets, John Ingle – alto saxophone, Tom Dambly – trumpet, John Shiurba – guitar, Kjell Nordeson – vibraphone, Gino Robair – percussion, Alexa Beattie – viola, Jorge Boehringer – viola, Monica Scott – cello, and Richard Worn – contrabass.
German tubist/composer: Carl Ludwig Hübsch
