kallisti chamber opera "A sound, vast and summerlike..." UC San Diego

kallisti chamber opera. Producer, director, artistic director. 'A sound, vast and summerlike...' juxtaposes concert music of two seminal figures of modern music: Eric Satie and Morton Feldman in a staged setting. The cornerstone of the production is Eric Satie's masterwork, Socrate. Written in 1918, Socrate is considered to be one of the precursors of minimalism and a turning point toward modernity. Surrounding this is chamber music of Morton Feldman; a composer in whom we see the influence of Satie in its full mid-century flower. His delicate, pulsing works can be compared to the painting of Mark Rothko; multi-layered, with exquisite instrumental and vocal color. Satie and Feldman's songs, at times humorous and ironic, at times serenely beautiful, complete the program.

Dembski's The Show and Glaser's Of Twilight  with New York New Music Ensemble at Center for Jewish History, New York City

Vocal chamber music. With New York New Music Ensemble in Stephen Dembski's "The Show" and David Glaser's "Of Twilight" at the Center for Jewish History in New York. The text of Glaser's "Of Twilight" is drawn from Charles Simic's Dime Store Alchemy, prose poems which find their inspiration in the strange and magical boxes of American artist Joseph Cornell.

Steven Dembski's "The Show" is a tour-de-force setting of the Donald Barthelme prose poem. Alternating between sprechstimme and sung material, the work is imbued with fantasy, humor and violence.

"It is difficult to keep the public interested. The public demands new wonders piled on new wonders. Often we don't know where our next marvel is coming from. The supply of strange ideas is not endless. The development of new wonders is not like the production of canned goods."
- From Donald Barthelme, The Show
