As the third decade of the 21st century approaches, the influence of minimalist classical composers such as Terry Riley, Steve Reich or Phillip Glass on contemporary electronic composers is clear to all. The American pianist Bruce Brubaker however is one of the few musicians capable of not only interpreting these masters but of re-imagining them for our contemporary moment. While his primary instrument is the pianoforte, Brubaker’s love and respect for electronic music is evident, with 2018’s Codex accompanied by a second LP of versions and remixes, featuring both Olga Bell and Arandel, as well as his own synth based extemporisations.
Glassforms, the show to be presented at SonarComplex will follow in this tradition, featuring a number of interpretations of the 20th century giant Phillip Glass, with live accompaniment by Max Cooper, one of modern electronica’s most promising talents, who has to date released 3 LP’s on labels such as Fields and Mesh.
