The new recording will serve as a follow-up to Alarm Will Sound’s ground-breaking 2005 debut album, Acoustica. That recording featured the ensemble performing arrangements of 13 compositions by electronica artist Aphex Twin.
In addition to performances of three works by Aphex Twin (T69 Collapse, Omgyjya Switch 7and minipops67) arranged by members of Alarm Will Sound, the Jan. 18th concert will feature Through Thoughts of a Different Kind, a work written for Alarm Will Sound by Igor Santos that received its world premiere at the 2018 Mizzou International Composers Festival.
Santos, originally from Curitiba, Brazil, was chosen as one of the resident composers for the 2018 MICF. The concert will also include performances of works by Lucrecia Dalt, King Britt and Marcos Balter, Jlin and a work by Tim Exile arranged by Oscar Bettison and transcribed by Mizzou alum Henry Stewart.
