Southland Ensemble presents; Earle Brown: FOLIO

  • Automata 504 Chung King Road Los Angeles, CA, 90012 United States (map)

The Southland Ensemble presents a concert of music by American composer Earle Brown (1926-2002). FOLIO is a large work divided into smaller sections that use alternate and interpretive notation. Earle Brown’s influence on the avant-garde community has been philosophical as well as tangible and practical. His conducting techniques and experiments with “time notation,” improvisation, and open-form compositional structure have become part of contemporary compositional usage. His work with new notations, scoring methods, and performance attitudes led to his development of graphic, improvisational, and "open-form" scores such as Folio and Four Systems.

"Time is the actual dimension in which music exists when performed and is by nature an infinitely divisible continuum. No metric system or notation based on metrics is able to indicate all of the possible points in the continuum, yet sound may begin or end anywhere along this dimension.”
