  • The Lightbulb Ensemble

    Date: 
    Tue, 04/14/2015 - 7:30pm - 9:00pm
    Location: 

    CCRMA STAGE

    Event Type: 
    Concert

    The Lightbulb Ensemble (LBE) is a composer collective that champions experimental music, instrument building, and contdmpoary gamelan. The ensemble emerged from the culture of new music at Mills College (several players are Mills graduate) and the longstanding cross-cultural artistic exchange of Gamelan Sekar Jaya.

    LBE performs on steel metallophones, wooden marimbas, and other musical instruments designed, tuned, and built by Brian Baumbusch, the ensemble's founder and director. LBE is cross-cultural in a musical sense as well: the ensemble utilizes techniques, textures, and concepts that fuse - and at times contrast with - Balinese and Western new-music community, including the Paul Dresher Ensemble, The Jack Quartet, and The Center for Contemporary Music.
