Program Notes: 


Hailed as a “boldly surreal aural experience” (The New York Times), Holographic is about exploring different worlds—improbable combinations of sound, hidden and imaginary sonic landscapes and projections by Los Angeles-based artist Daniel Schwarz. Composer Daniel Wohl says, “By processing or re-sampling more traditional instruments like strings, percussion, or the human voice, I wanted to create music that has a strong link to the past while at the same time being rooted in what we listen to on a daily basis. I wanted to retain the warmth and inconsistencies of human playing while interfacing with the technologies that are available to all of us.”

Born in Paris and now residing in Los Angeles, Daniel Wohl blends electronics with acoustic instrumentation to often "surprising and provocative effect" (NPR). His multifaceted output ranges from intimate music for soloists to immersive electronic pieces, music for film and television, chamber ensembles and works for large orchestras. He has received praise for making music that is "beautiful...original" (Pitchfork).


This performance is supported in part by the Maryland State Arts Council and The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation.
