Las Cruxes Presents an evening of modern compositions. This will be Sarah Davachi's Texas debut performance and Sean McCann will perform accompanied by a local ensemble of players and singers.
Sarah Davachi is a Canadian sound artist, composer of electronic and electroacoustic music and pianist.
The instrumentation she employs is varied, including analog synthesizers, piano, electric organ, pipe and reed organ, voice, tape-replay samplers, orchestral strings, and woodwinds, with mutual idioms often layered in textural and timbral counterpoint.
Davachi holds a bachelor's degree in philosophy from the University of Calgary, and a master's degree in electronic music and recording media from Mills College in Oakland, California where she studied with Maggi Payne, James Fei, and David Bernstein.
She is currently a doctoral student in musicology at UCLA and is based in Los Angeles, California.
Sean McCann is a Los Angeles-based composer, sound artist, curator, and audio engineer. He concurrently operates Recital, a label dedicated to sound poetry, new music, and Fluxus archival recordings.
McCann first began issuing self-released cassettes of improvised experimental music in 2007. He quickly became a fixture of the underground cassette and CD-R scene, with a staggering amount of releases. Over the next decade-plus, he has performed and released music spanning multiple genres, more recently focused in vocal experiments as well as piano and chamber compositions. McCann has contributed his talents—from strings to mastering—on recordings by other musicians including, Zola Jesus, Sarah Davachi, Ian William Craig, Itasca, and Loren Connors.
This event is supported in part by the City of Austin Cultural Arts Division and Co-Lab Projects.
