Wild Rumpus presents a program of opposites, juxtaposing harmony and noise, movement and stillness. Gritty, kinetic energy reigns supreme in Ofir Klemperer’s punk-chamber Love Song and in the clattering theatrics of David Coll’s Position, Influence. Harmonious stillness characterizes Jacob Cooper’s serene haiku Silver Threads and Arvo Pärt’s meditative Spiegel Im Spiegel. Rounding out the program are new works written for Wild Rumpus by David Bird, Ben Richter, and artistic director Dan VanHassel, composers who make exquisite use of color and contrast in their work.  More...
