The Now Hear Ensemble, a Santa Barbara-based quintet that recently performed at REDCAT, will be presenting an evening of new work by their artistic director and double bass player, Federico Llach, alongside music by Tom Johnson, the great 21st century minimalist composer, and Clarence Barlow, the Chair of Composition in the Department of Music at the University of California Santa Barbara. Through instrumental sound and video projections by artist Gabriela Goldberg, the quintet celebrates music that explores the beauty and precision of sequenced, algorithmic, and generative mathematics.
