Kansas City Electronic Music and Arts Alliance (KcEMA) opens its Fourth Season with electro<>acústico, a concert featuring clarinetist Mauricio Salguero. The concert is Saturday, October 2, 8pm at la Esquina, 1000 West 25th Street. Doors open at 7:30pm; admission is $10/$5 students. Salguero, an old friend of KcEMA, has interacted considerably with their members in the past years; Electro<>acústico is the result of that collaboration.
Salguero will present world premieres of pieces written specifically for him by composers Rodolfo Acosta, Andrew Cole, Jason Bolte and Eric Honour plus pieces by Jorge Sosa and Mark Snyder. The program combines a cutting edge mix of video, electronic sounds and high tech with the emotional intensity and technical dexterity of Mauricio’s playing. Guest artist Rebecca Ashe will join Mauricio on flute performing Asha Srinivasan´s Bapu; an exciting piece based on Indian traditional music.
