Slought Foundation and Soundfield NFP are pleased to announce an evening of new and experimental music with Hamburg based composer Michael Maierhof, played by Philadelphia’s Ensemble Noamnesia. After years of work in relative isolation, composer Michael Maierhof has gained great recognition recently as one of the most important new voices in contemporary music. Working mostly with acoustic instruments, Maierhof achieves unparalleled sound textures that fascinate us as both bizarre and seductively beautiful. Guest artists for this program include the great Brazilian musician Paulo Alvares, pianist of the West German Radio Orchestra and Alex Waterman, a New York based cellist.

This program is made possible in part through the generous sponsorship or support of Sound Field NFP and grants from the Argosy Fund for Contemporary Music and the Philadelphia Music Project, a program of The Philadelphia Center for Arts and Heritage, funded by The Pew Charitable Trusts and administered by The University of the Arts, with support from Bowerbird.
