Event Details

Kupka’s Piano perform the last concert in their 2014 series at the Judy, presenting a cutting-edge program of works dwelling on the edges of existence…

“Traditionally, a veil is a device that acts as a mediating force between viewer and object – it creates a ritual space around the object, giving potency to the mystery of its forbidden presence.” So writes Australian composer Liza Lim of her 1999 work Veil, and begs the question of what could be a music of absences, a music of near absences and absent presences, of things hidden to be heard. Alongside enchanting, vanishing works by composers Peter Ablinger, Chikako Morishita, Luke Paulding & Morton Feldman, this concert features Lim’s Veil and a new octet by Ben Marks (ELISION Ensemble).
