BAC Salon: Carolina Eyck + ACME

Fantasias (World Premiere)

Theremin master Carolina Eyck and The American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME) perform Eyck’s minimalist Fantasias for string quartet and theremin, using electronic effects to bring an authentically fresh sonic pallet to the forefront. At times reverent to traditional melody, harmony, and tone, while at other times as defiant as the most eccentric Musique Concrete, the Fantasias bears the mark of a true virtuoso in her prime.

Composed specifically for the LP format, Eyck and ACME have recorded the Fantasias for release in October 2016 on Butterscotch Records.

BAC Salon is a series of concerts performed in an intimate salon setting.
