“You’d be hard pressed to find a better songstress, or bear witness to a more dynamic performer.” – Rift Magazine
An evening of new electro-acoustic works composed by Aby Wolf, in collaboration with Eric Mayson and Grant Cutler, and performed by a cast of renowned musicians as comfortable in experimentation as virtuosity. Blurring the lines between ambient neo-minimalism, chamber music, and electro-R&B, Champagne Confetti delivers a gateway from near-silent meditation to full harmonic abundance, experienced as a union of sonic dream states and coursing, rhythmic waves of unbounded sound.
Inspired by the imminent universal need to find footing in an unstable world, these new compositions explore uncertainty, on both a personal and global scale. Through a creative process based in improvisation, and the resulting atypical song structures, Champagne Confetti is a practice in embracing uncertainty. The ensemble’s performances realize the heart of this new work: choosing community to find belonging in the unknown. Banding together as artists and musicians, they prioritize solidarity and communion to generate positive change, uniting through artistic growth.
