Voix Voilées: Spectral Piano Music

Marilyn Nonken and Joshua Fineberg
May 29–June 1, 2012
Concert Hall

A collaboration between pianist Marilyn Nonken and composer Joshua Fineberg; while Nonken recorded works for solo piano, Fineberg mixed and mastered them in EMPAC’s audio production room. Combining Fineberg’s work in psycho-acoustics and Nonken’s virtuosic command of the modern repertoire, the performance produced Voix Voilées: Spectral Piano Music, featuring the music of Fineberg and an additional composition from Hugues Dufourt. Nonken is a celebrated champion of the modern repertoire who has performed at such venues as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Miller Theatre, the Guggenheim Museum, and (Le) Poisson Rouge. After teaching at Harvard University, where he is the John L. Loeb Associate Professor for the Humanities, Fineberg assumed a professorship in composition and the directorship of the electronic music studios at Boston University. In 2012, he became the founding director of the Boston University Center for New Music.
