Anne Leilehua Lanzilotti and Argus Quartet
Co-commissioned by the Newman Center, Anne Leilehua Lanzilotti and Argus Quartet present “ahupua’a,” a string quartet that addresses the Hawaiian concept of land division centered around community need.
This exciting collaboration takes place with the artists and audience both seated on the stage of Gates Concert Hall. The world premiere of the piece will take place March 9 at the University of California San Diego.
About Anne Leilehua Lanzilotti:
A “leading composer-performer” (The New York Times), Lanzilotti’s “conceptually potent” work is characterized by explorations of timbre and an interest in translating everyday sounds to concert instruments using nontraditional techniques. Her musical voice is grounded in experimental practices, both through influences as part of the network of musicians / artists in the Wandelweiser collective, and her own explorations into radical indigenous contemporaneity. “Lanzilotti’s score brings us together across the world in remembrance, through the commitment of shared sonic gestures.” (Cities & Health)
